High Desert

PBS will have a special tonight, all about the city of Susanville and the impact that the prisons have caused in the community.

I'm without a television...but I already know what they have done to this city and to Lassen County. When I lived up there I was against the proposal to build the prison, but the lure of easy money from the state caused most voters to approve it. It has been a disaster. And I don't think that most of the citizens even realize what they lost when they allowed the prisons to be built. And it's forever; you can't unbuild a prison...
