I never thought I’d comment on Big Brother, but when I learned that the inmates aren’t even allowed writing implements inside, I am convinced that the place is completely inhumane. I can’t imagine a life where I can’t write, whether on paper or on the computer.

I suppose that the restriction serves a couple of goals of the producer. (1) no passing notes from inmate to inmate: all communication must be picked up by the microphones. (2) no writing of diaries (and all that that entails).

Oh, hey, Merlin Luck’s protest was great. Good on him.
