Summer Boredom

November 17, 1965
Where'd this prisoner get a pickax? I understand letting prisoners have your basic hardware tools--hammers, screwdrivers, saws--because it just makes sense to have prisoners do the routine maintenance around the prison. What else are they doing? But pickaxes seems beyond what prisoners should be able to do. If I were in prison and you handed me a pickax, I would totally think "I wonder if I could escape using this".

Were the video games taken away? Doesn't Hattie begin her Most Dangerous Game contest around this time? Maybe they should make a movie!
