Austrian prisons/Österreichische Gefängnisse

I sometimes look at The Glory of Carniola – I’m particularly fond of the photo on the opening page – and now there is a nice entry explaining why there is so much burglary in Austria: it’s because the prisons are so comfortable and well-appointed:

Hell, I live just a few kilometers from the border and I’m seriously considering heading over there this weekend and doing some serious damage. What’s the worst that can happen? Either I come back with a new kick-ass flat-screen television or they send me to some place like the Justice Center Leoben and I get a few months of all-inclusive paid vacation. It’s win-win!
