Abstract

An interview with an inmate at Indiana State Prison who coordinates a program in which children can write a letter to Santa Claus and inmates respond.

Description

A reporter from WLS-TV’s Seven On Your Side interviews an Indiana State Prison inmate named Rich who describes a program he coordinates in which participating inmates answer Christmas mail from children. To the reporter’s frustration, Rich mistakenly refers to Seven On Your Side repeatedly as Action Seven. The piece concludes with an interview with the prison’s warden, Jack Raymond Duckworth.
