I'm Shocked ... Shocked! ...

... that new Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie Jones thinks the answer to her department's problems is "more money."

Glancing at DOC's budgets since 2009, yes, there's been a slight drawdown. But that drawdown doesn't just include dollars, it includes inmate numbers. And if you look at the expenditures, they've gone down in every category ... except "administration." That number keeps creeping up.

I'm not too terribly inclined to sympathize with a bureaucrat who gets to spend more than $2 billion per year in an enterprise fielding 20,000 employees when she says she needs more money to keep 90,000 people in cages. How about getting all those numbers down? Preferably to zero?
