Inside Bomber's Row

This week in 3150 we've been discussing the "super-max" federal prison facility known as ADX Florence, located in Florence Colorado. Inside this prison, where inmates are locked down 23/24 hours a day, reside some of the world's most notorious criminals.

Here's a link to the Time magazine story on ADX Florence from November, 2006, which features the writings and thoughts of convicted Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph on his first year in the hole. He also notes his musings on other inmates on "Bomber's Row" such as Ted Kaczynski, Terry Nichols, Ramzi Yousef, Zacarias Mousaoui, and Richard Reid, among others.

As we discussed, this is about as close as you'll be able to get (or want) to life inside one of the world's most infamous prisons.
