"The Cut" Is Closed

Hard to miss the news reports about the state's move to close the maximum security portion of the Jessup prison. Dubbed "the cut" because of the way the railroad tracks cut into the property, the place has proven to be scary indeed over the years. The most hardened of hardened criminals are now far away from here, scattered to other states and institutions throughout Maryland, but plenty of prison-related facilities will remain in the area. Some worry about how family members will locate the transferred inmates.
