Jailhouse blues

One of the most poignant things I’ve read lately is Slate‘s article about a dictionary of prison slang compiled by participants in an education program in a Missouri prison. I particularly like “kite” for an informal message, although I can’t quite plumb the way in which one would be most likely to send a kite–word of mouth, I’d guess?

(WordPress just wished me a “happy anniversary,” which reminded me that my first post here was eight years ago today.)
