Last Sunday, the Tribune ran an article on recidivism and rehabilitation by Rex Huppke on the front page, and it generated letters to the editor throughout the week. The New York Times examines similar terrain this weekend, looking at state and local efforts to assist in prisoner re-entry. Both stories pay special attention to the Sheridan Correctional Center, soon to be the nation's largest drug treatment-oriented prison.
