I was playing Soul Calibur III this weekend, and I was thinking: "Man, if I didn't have crap to do all the time and if I had a roommate instead of being married to a non-gamer, I could finally beat that damn Mitsurgi and ascend to the top of the Soul Calibur pantheon."
Then, like a bolt from the blue, the answer came to me in the form of a Denver Post article: Commit a crime in Colorado.
A private prison in Las Animas Colorado began allowing non-violent offenders who behave themselves are allowed to pass time in the stony lonesome by playing games. They're only allowed sports and racing titles (so maybe Top Spin for me instead of Soul Calibur).
"It keeps them busy, and a busy inmate is less likely to be a management problem," said Katherine Sanguinetti , a spokeswoman with the Colorado Department of Corrections.
