California Prison Academy—Better Than a Harvard Degree

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations boasts that
it "has been called 'the greatest entry-level job in California'—and for good reason. Our officers earn a great salary, and a retirement package you just can't find in private industry. We even pay you to attend our academy." That's right—instead of paying more than $200,000 to attend Harvard, you could earn $3,050 a month at cadet academy. - - Allysia Finley: - WSJ.com

Your Say

Endure a living hell for 20 years so you can have a cushy retirement income? Not me, then or now. I made it a point to have fun as soon as I was old enough to make a point. And I kept on having fun. And I'm still having fun, at 82. Scraping by, but having fun.

Yeah, but twenty years surrounded by the worst of the worst that Cali has managed to catch will change a man.
