Quote of the Year: Erle Stanley Gardner: “Prison is a Place Where Criminals Come From.”


“The average citizen thinks that the penitentiary is the place where criminals go to.

Actually, the penitentiary is the place where criminals come from.”

–Erle Stanley Gardner

“The Court of Last Resort: The True Story of a Team of Crime Experts Who Fought to Save the Wrongfully Convicted” was published a year ago (April 11, 2017) by Open Road Media and is available on Amazon as a paperback for $15.99 (or somewhat less)… it had sixteen reviews when I checked this morning.  The book was originally published in 1952 and Gardner died in 1970 (according to one of the reviews.)  This edition is updated and expanded (it says.)

I will try to get a copy of this book.  You probably should too.
