Seriously, Reason? You think this is a libertarian thing to do??
The Case for Privatizing California's Prisons: They'll cut state costs and save taxpayer dollars.
At least its commenters get it. Commenter Danny says it best:

To be fair, the article seems to have leaked out of reason.org, which tries to be more politically feasible than reason.com, but ends up supporting anything with the word "privatized" in it, regardless of how much it reeks of corporatism.
