Workin' on the chain gang

not me personally.

I was somewhat shocked on my drive to the office yesterday to espy, as I rounded the curve from McDonald to 44th Street, firstly a guy wielding what looked awfully like a shotgun, followed by the sight of about a dozen crew cut prisoners clad in horizontal black and white stripes marching in single file (and boy were they marching!) followed by another guy with a shotgun and then the sign that explained it all. The sign said:

Sherrifs Prison Work Detail.

Uh huh; it's 2005 and in a middle class neighbourhood in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, you can find a chain gang at work?
