Re "How crime really pays" (Dan Morain, Forum, Sept. 1): Actually, Dan Morain is saying that prisons are good for business. Unfortunately, they are only good for businesses that are bad for people.
So what if my retirement fund needs returns from its Corrections Corp. of America stock? I'd rather forego those dividends and have a more functional society with more Head Start education and fewer ex-inmates with post-traumatic stress.
