Greeting cards for incarcerated loved ones


Nothing rehabilitates a prisoner quite like getting passive-aggressively browbeaten by his friends and family on the outside. At least, that appears to be the rationale behind attorney Terrye L. Cheathem’s line of inmate greeting cards. It’s a nice gesture, but the cards tend towards messages like “You had the choice to be ’naughty or nice.’ And you chose … oh well, now you have to do your time.” Which is about as inspiring as “Don’t be no one’s bitch.” Cheathem further describes her cards as “one product no one wants to receive and no one wants to buy, but if you need it, it’s there.” Now there’s a message I can get behind.
