Jailed Judy

new_jail3.jpgThe Post today takes a look at the jailed Gray Lady reporter across the river.

Judy Miller appears to be fitting in fine at the “new generation” Alexandria Detention Center, whose chief, Alexandria Sheriff James H. Dunning, proudly boasts hasn’t had a suicide, murder, or escape in his 20 years heading it. The jail is often home to high profile inmates, but Dunning says “The celebrities get the same treatment here as anyone else.”

Miller has a job as a floor monitor–cleaning up trays after meals–and spends her days writing, watching TV, and reading. Dunning said Miller is “fitting in just fine. Let’s face it, jail is not fun. But she is not having any unusual difficulty adjusting to the environment.”

According to the Post, “Miller sleeps in an 80-square-foot cell with a concrete slab and mattress for a bed and two thin slits for windows. She has told visitors that she brushes her hair with a toothbrush. She dines on such delicacies as turkey a la king and ‘down home’ ham and pinto beans.”

Of course, it’s taking her newspaper subscriptions a few days to get to her, so she may not have found out about this slap yet….
