From the NY Post:
With the economy still in critical condition and no cure in site, Mayor Bloomberg released an austere election-year budget...that cuts even the bread allocation to inmates on Rikers Island.
To save $400,000, the Correction Department is reducing the number of bread slices each inmate receives each day from 12 to eight.
One city official said the measure was designed not just to reduce the agency's budget but also inmates' waistlines.
"Who else eats a dozen slices of bread a day?" the official asked.
Yeah, I was wondering that myself...
