How is this heat wave going for you?

Climate warming affects all of us, including those on death row.

Do you know that the small windows on Texas death row do not open?

The Houston Chronicle recently reported on the sweltering prisons in Texas:

State prison officials are in emergency-response mode this week as a heat wave bears down on a large swath of Texas, rivaling the system that triggered the deaths of 10 inmates from heat stroke in 2011.

As a matter of fact, early June the ventilation system in Hank’s section was broken for more than 10 days causing unbearable heat. Hank who takes heat-sensitive medication was severely affected. As a result he shaved his hair in attempt to cool down.
