Preaching in Prison

[![](/content/images/George.jpg "George")](
Honestly, I could not pass up this opportunity.
Hilarity never ceases to ensue with our political elite: [Fox Chicago reported]( Monday that Rod Blagojevich will be teaching Shakespeare to fellow inmates in prison! Okay, so it’s not really preaching anything, but the idea struck me as incredibly interesting. I would like to think that this follows a recent trend of introducing unconventional subjects in educating  inmates, as described in [this Ted Talk]( about teaching philosophy in prison.

Rod Blagojevich is the former Governor of Illinois, who was impeached for corruption charges in 2009, and convicted in 2011 to 14 years of jail-time.
