A gentleman suggested that you change your name to the "Republicans bad - Democrats good" paper. Maybe he can't handle the truth.

I watch political shows daily and most of them offer different views from all sides. Ironically what I hear from them is the same stuff I read in the Daily News. Obviously this person gets his info somewhere else, otherwise he would be glad that the Daily News prints the truth whether it hurts or not. Thank you, Daily News.

Cellphones, cigarettes, marijuana and other contraband reportedly being smuggled into the city's prisons. Numerous reports of "mishandled" money by prison staff. Sex between inmates and staff. Drug use. Rampant lateness and doctoring of time cards. Officers leaving posts unattended while they take extended lunches or socialize with prisoners. And lots of napping on the job.

Why, all of a sudden, is this front page news?
