The names given to our federal correctional facilities are so sterile and bureaucratic-sounding that I think it’s time we begin renaming them. I have a suggestion for renaming the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago. Why not call it the Jesse Jackson, Jr. Correctional Facility or maybe something a little hipper like Jesse J.J.’s Big House? After all shouldn’t we continue to honor the vanity of politicians by naming public buildings after them?
I guess the people who contributed to Jesse Jackson Jr.’s campaign got the respect from him they deserved. I mean, if people finance the campaign of a politician whose main function, when he gets to Congress, is to fleece the taxpayers, what right do they have to complain when he fleeces them?
