This is in response to the Dec. 21 editorial, "Maine must cut prison costs, but not this way."
There is so much money wasted by the Department of Corrections that sends people out from prisons (maybe costing taxpayers more than if they paid for prisoners to go to college) and they are not corrected.
No blame on the staff and administrators. America has a tradition of useless and harmful prisons.
The editorial is evidence that Maine may be ready to lead the nation in rehabilitation rather than warehousing.
