TOM HUERKAMP: REQUIRED READING





Dear HCN,


Paul Larmer's skillful account of Tom Huerkamp's magnificent struggle to hold prison expansion at bay in Delta County (HCN, 6/26/95) ought to be required reading for every county administrator in this country. If ever there was a classic example of how dumb untended markets can be, it has been the rush to incorporate prisons into the production-consumption continuum, converting them into engines for assuring the economic survival of rural communities.
