The Squeaky Weal Lecture Series: Tom Dart

Highlights:

* The Cook County Jail is now the largest mental health provider in Illinois. This is not good.

* Charlie Trotter and Publican buy their produce from the jail garden. This is not a secret.

* About 20 inmates work at the city's animal control facility. They've replaced bad employees.

* Eighty to 85 percent of the jail population never goes on to prison. They go from jail back into the community because of time-served, probation, etc.

* Three former prostitutes work sweeps to help redirect women off the streets.
