Interview with Ted

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Ted: Playing cards and reading books.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Ted: You had to buy the cards or know somebody who had some. They had a little bookshelf and you can pick books out whenever you want.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Ted: No, not really. They have a gym where you can run and do pushups and sit ups.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Ted: Never.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Ted: Yes. They were daily during the week. They offered church services and NA meetings. You could also sign up for anger management and stuff like that.
