Speaking of my nastier impulses...I don't think we should allow prisoners to get super-buff while incarcerated. 30 minutes of walking per day is about all the general public gets in terms of exercise, good enough for prisoners I should think. And it's not as if workouts make prisoners better behaved so far as I know. Seems likely to make them more dangerous when they get out. I would prefer them to have more access to education, reading materials and healthy food, and less to TV and exercise equipment. Though maybe the soporific of TV makes prisoners easier to manage.

I would think they need some outlet for their energy. Some way to exhaust themselves. Perhaps treadmills instead of weight lifting, but everyone needs to do *something*. Granted, sex is one of the methods, but from what I understand it isn't necessarily the one we want to encourage. (I prefer the manual labor method. Please feel free to spend a few extra hours a day pulling weeds in the field that provides the prison's food.)
