    (STMW) – Last month on the train ride home from prison, Shermaine Miles said she was done with booze — done with the old life of petty crime, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. Old habits apparently die hard. The woman who has racked up a near-record 396 arrests picked up one more this week when she was hauled off an Edgewater street for a host of alleged offenses, including misdemeanor battery, theft, reckless conduct and drinking in public. Miles, 52, was due to appear at the George Leighton courthouse at 26th and California Friday, police said. “It’s sad,” remarked Ald....

    U.S. prison warden: Muslim prayers led to gangs The warden of a U.S. prison holding high-risk inmates, including American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, insisted Thursday that he was obeying a court order to allow daily group prayer by permitting inmates to pray in pairs within their cells. Warden John Oliver told a federal judge that when the prison allowed group prayer earlier this year, Muslim inmates formed gangs and bullied other prisoners. Lindh attended the hearing by video conference from the high-security unit that houses him and about 40 other inmates, including several convicted on terror charges. A U.S....

    Live Out Your Walking Dead Fantasies In This Abandoned Tennessee Prison - Modern Ruins We're going to have to wait until season three of The Walking Dead TV show to see the zombie-filled prison. But if you're near Nashville, you can visit the Tennessee State Prison, an abandoned penitentiary. It looks like the zombies got to it first. Even before it fell into decay, this prison suffered plenty of woes at the hands of its prisoners. In 1902, a group of prisoners blew out a wing of the facility, killing one prisoner and allowing others to escape (two were never...

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school.Edwards, in an interview with the Web site Beliefnet.com, said Jesus would be most upset with the selfishness of Americans and the country's willingness to go to war "when it's not necessary." "I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs," Edwards told...

    Former national security adviser Sandy Berger removed classified documents from the National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported Wednesday. The report was issued more than a year after Berger pleaded guilty and received a criminal sentence for removal of the documents. Inspector General Paul Brachfeld reported that when Berger was confronted by Archives officials about the missing documents, he said it was possible he threw them in his office trash. The report said that when Archives employees first suspected that Berger _ who had been President Clinton's national security adviser _...

    HONOLULU (AP) — TV reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman and two co-stars on his show were arrested early Thursday in Hawaii on charges of illegal detention and conspiracy in an alleged kidnapping three years ago in Mexico, U.S. Marshals said. Chapman, 53, his son Leland Chapman, and associate Timothy Chapman were taken into custody in an operation involving 15 officers, said Mark Hanohano, U.S. Marshal for the district of Hawaii. They did not resist arrest, he said. "All three were very compliant," Hanohano said. "It went down without incident." Mona K. Wood, a publicist for the star of the popular...

    CELEB Big Brother prat George Galloway is today exposed in his revolting true colours — fawning before Saddam Hussein’s murderous son Uday. An astonishing video shown in part on the Sun TV Bulletin depicts Galloway, 51, laughing and joking with the evil psychopath during a 20-minute meeting in an Iraqi palace. The Respect party MP, who Sun readers can boot off the Channel 4 show tonight, has sickened viewers with his antics in the BB house. Galloway’s crawling around the tyrannical old Iraqi regime was even more disgusting. He famously met dictator Saddam in 1994 and told him: “Sir, allow...

    George Galloway tonight became the fourth person to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house as he admitted he had failed in his aims during almost two weeks of reality TV. The Respect MP attracted 64.7% of the public vote after being nominated alongside fake celebrity Chantelle Houghton and US basketball star Dennis Rodman. As he emerged from the house, a smiling Mr Galloway was met with boos and cheers from the crowd who gathered for tonight's double eviction.
  • Greeting cards made especially for inmates

    Aki Tymes was living in Dewey Beach, Del., in 2003 when he learned his cousin had "gone back into the system" for selling drugs. At first, Tymes, 33, was angry. His relative was raised to know right from wrong, he said. But anger quickly gave way to compassion and the desire to reach out to his cousin. "But guys don't write letters," Tymes said. A greeting card seemed like the perfect solution, but Tymes said the selection at the stores was either "mushy" or inappropriate. "The only cards you have to choose from are sympathy cards. But usually the cover...
