It's good to see that Our Favourite Prisoner is making the best of his time in jail. In an interview, Conrad Black tells the Canadian National Post how he's spending his days.

"I eat some granola and go to my workplace where I tutor high school-leaving candidates, one-on-one, though sometimes I have to deal with up to four at a time, around my desk, and talk with fellow tutors and other convivial people.
"I lunch around 11am with friends from education, work on e-mails, play the piano for 30 to 60 minutes, return to my tutoring tasks by 1pm, return to my unit at 3pm, deal with more e-mails, rest from 4pm to 6pm, eat dinner in the unit then, and go for a walk in the compound or recreation yard for a couple of hours, drinking coffee well-made by Colombian fellow-residents.
"I come back into the residence about 8.30pm, deal with e-mails and whatever, have my shower etc, around midnight, read until 1-1.30am and go to sleep. On the weekends it is pretty open."

He's also learning to play the piano.
This is such a shining advertisement for the Florida penal system that I'm seriously considering relocating there.

My, my, what a nice resort. One might consider retiring there.

It's certainly a temptation, isn't it?

My worry is that he'll have trouble adjusting to life on the outside when he gets out.
