Hatching a Plan

So "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch will be going to jail for refusing to pay taxes on his $1 million "Survivor" winnings.

He got 51 months. Wow. That's even longer than queen of mean Leona Helmsley ended up serving!

What really gave me a chuckle was his lawyer's stating that Richard "would prefer" to serve his sentence near family in Rhode Island or Florida. I recall that same "preference" being voiced by the aforementioned, vagina-lipped Leona back when she was sentenced in 1989.

Hello?! It's prison, folks! You're not there to feel comfortable, and it's not about making you happy or accommodating you. You're there to pay a debt to society, not the other way around. So be careful where you bend over, now.

Of course, with all of that time Richard spent on the island, he could easily improvise a weapon to overpower the guards and live on berries and insects indefinitely once he breaks out of prison.

Now, I'm not advocating tax evasion or SEC fraud, but what kind of effed up world is this where Richard Hatch and Martha Stewart do time, while real criminals get off scot-free?

Just wrong, so very wrong.

I think all corporate criminals and members of the current administration (the same thing really, ne c'est pas?) should be forced to compete on "Survivor." Without the cameras, without the trailer full of food just OFF-camera, and no season limitations--just indefinitely. Let's see if we can get a little "Lord of the Flies" thing going here...
