    Illegal contracts in NM? part 1

    press, whether it is in the legal arena such as
    with AG's discussions with WHC's recent news in New
    Mexico or the old news of CRN's in PA, these are
    typically driven by either union activity, opposing
    politics or "technical" issues that will be fixed with
    tweeking a contract or legislation. But the bottom line is
    that there is a serious prison overcrowding problem,
    the gov't cannot come close to keeping up even with
    the "new" inmates each year, much less fix the
    current overcrowding, and the privates are a cost
    effective solution for all these issues.

    So while I
    agree that I wouldn't use the phrase "game, set,
    match", I would say that the "game will be won" for all
    the privates, and not to get too worried about the
    occassional bad press, because economics and the "essential"
    nature of this industry will always prevail.
