My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

7.3 million prisoners…

My Two Census Statistic of the Week: There are more than 7 million prisoners in America…

A Modest Proposal in Response to the My Two Census Statistic of the Week: If each non-violent American prisoner had the option to ride bicycles connected to power generators for three hours per day to produce electricity for the public (while also improving their health), America would generate tons of cheap renewable energy while also lowering long-term healthcare costs. Sure, we may have to feed prisoners more pasta with marinara sauce to give them the energy needed for such a venture, but the savings would surel make up for this menial cost. And maybe some of our prisoners would turn themselves into next generation Lance Armstrongs, improving America’s credibility and success in global cycling competitions.
