Return to Sender

I bought some prestamped postcards on a lark when ordering stamps one time. They looked cute. I didn't know why they existed, but I'm always down for weird postal stuff.

Today I was looking up how to address them, and fell down this rabbit hole. You may be familiar with the evils of for-profit video calls with prisoners but I gotta tell you, this surprised me.

Keeping prisoners in communication and connection with the outside world is genuinely necessary for their rehabilitation and thus everyone's safety, even if you don't believe as I do in the essential dignity of imprisoned people. No one is safer because some poor guy had to expose his SSN to fill a glasses prescription.
