Quote of the year

"It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the! Tents for 1 year .

"It's inhumane."

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff [ARIZONA, MARICOPA COUNTY] who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates:

"It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"
