I'm trying to reconcile this info from the AP news wire:
    Martha Stewart has been ordered to serve her sentence for lying about a stock sale at the federal prison in Alderson, W.Va. ....

    Alderson, which opened in 1927, was the first federal prison for women. Set on a hill in rural West Virginia, Alderson is known for its open environment. There are no metal fences surrounding the camp.

    Its best-known inmates include Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, a member of the Manson family who tried to shoot President Ford, and Sara Jane Moore, who also tried to kill Ford.
Um. Okay. You try to kill the president and serve time in a prison without fences?

I'm not really that interested in Martha's plight, but sometimes I feel like I should be, in an eye-on-the-culture sort of way.

I think I'm the only one who likes this new LJ interface, by the way. I like seeing the icons before I post. Yay, icons!
