On one of our trips to San Francisco, we took the ferry to Napa Valley and passed San Quentin prison. One of the hostesses on the ferry told us that she was babysitting at the time of a prison break and she was frightened. She said that she armed herself with a bottle of hair spray and a hair brush and didn't move from the front door until the prisoners were caught.
While she was telling us that story, she got nervous all over again. Her face paled, her speech became more rapid, and her breathing was heavier. Then, she got herself a drink of water and sat down with us and became calm again.
We are reminded of this story because of the prison break in New York - but son't worry, we have our hair spray right at hand,
