    According to the Detroit News, The State of Michigan is losing money having prisoners manufacturing license plates etc.

        Lansing -- State auditors say Michigan is losing money by having prisoners make license plates, road signs, office furniture and other products.

        An audit released Tuesday says the Bureau of Correctional Industries lost more than $7 million over four years.

        While the program's mission isn't to make money, state law requires it to be a "total self-supporting system."

        The audit faults the state for not having business or marketing plans.

    So many jokes, so little time....
