Prison Envy

Via How Appealing, The Montana Town That Wanted to be Gitmo:

Convinced that it would provide steady employment for over 100 locals, as well as accompanying economic benefits, the residents financed it through the sale of revenue bonds and turned it over to a for-profit prison-management corporation.

On a 40-acre field at the edge of town where pronghorn antelope once grazed, they built it. But nobody came.
