Fact of the Day

The cost of imprisoning each of California's 130,000 inmates is expected to reach a record $75,560 in the next year, $2,000 above tuition, fees, room and board, and other expenses to attend Harvard.

The price for each inmate has doubled since 2005, even as court orders related to overcrowding have reduced the population by about one-quarter. 

 New York is second in overall costs at about $69,000.
