JDI IN THE NEWS - 2002

Doug Young, 7 UPdates, Slate, June 3, 2002.

7 UPdates: Several people wrote in to say that the guy I described in last week's Ad Report Card as "squirreling away a can of 7 UP for safekeeping" in a sock was in fact making a weapon. This shows once again that I don't know as much about prison weaponry as my readers do. Also, I should have given Reuters credit for its article about 7 UP deciding to take the ad off the air; and contrary to what the various reports said, the group that complained about the spot was Stop Prisoner Rape, not Stop Prison Rape.
