The volunteers of the Jail Library Group at UW-Madison found this inscription in a donated copy of the Book of Mormon. The book is now in the Dane County Jail’s collection.

Yesterday I found an address book in the snow at the corner of my street. I’m guessing it belongs to a prisoner because there’s lots of names of judges, reference to a mafioso and a recurring number that could be his prison ID.
