A Good Use for Prisons

Prisons have few uses beyond being a source of slave labor for the state and its cronies. At least that is until you give a prison to some creative people who are interested in providing their computer a product. After that you can turn that worthless old facility of cages into a wonderful distillery:

WARTBURG, Tenn. — Voters in Morgan County have approved a referendum that allows an old prison to be turned into a distillery.

WATE-TV reports voters approved the measure Tuesday night by a margin of 1,224 ballots.

The station reports the vote clears the way for a developer to turn the old Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary into a distillery with a campground and other attractions.

I would love to see more prisons receive this kind of treatment.
