FIGHT RECIDIVISM!!!

In Greer County, Okla., the sheriff is replacing the jail's faded and tattered orange jumpsuits with pink ones.

Devin Huckabay says male inmates "don't like wearing them" and the outfits are therefore an incentive not to break the law.

At a county jail in Texas - maximum capacity four males and one female - inmates are dressed in pink jumpsuits. They sleep on pink sheets and wear pink slippers. Even the walls and the bars of the cells are painted pink.

"I wanted to stop reoffenders," the sheriff of Mason County, Clint Low, told the Associated Press.

And Chicago has a Pink (transit) Line. Whatta concept!

A writer for The Chicago Tribune said it was "strange" to have a pink line "in a city known for ... deep-dish pizza and Chicago Bear-loving beer guzzlers."

I have a couple of pink ties, and yes, I do wear them on days outside of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I love the color.
