Crime does and doesn't pay

Having one's sentence reduced by one year is a worthy recompense, even given that
one has to work a dangerous job for minimal pay.

From the fire into the frying pan:
"Was I scared at times? Yes, but I've been scared in the regular prison setting more so than on the fire line."

I don't think it was necessary that the article mention inmates convicted of arson were not qualified for the firefighting program, although it could very well be a great learning lesson or eye opener for arson convicts, but maybe not.

Off topic: my eyesight must be improving, for the fonts and images on the Nth are bigger and clearer.

***Also Off Topic: Same here! Looks like @hungryghost has tweaked the website. No more leaderboard but neater interface. It would be nice if the font size were bigger when typing in whatever we would like to post, before we hit "Submit".

Congratulations on your improved vision, @Isamorph! :slight_smile:
