When inmates act out, the loaf is served

SANTA CRUZ -- On Christmas Day, the inmates at the County Jail will get a welcome respite from their regularly scheduled nutritious but mostly unexciting high school cafeteria-style meals -- glazed ham with sweet potatoes and ice cream for dessert.

If an inmate has been behaving poorly, however, while all his incarcerated compatriots dine on one of the few special meals of the year, he will instead be forced to feast on the loaf.

It is otherwise known as the disciplinary diet loaf, prison loaf and management loaf. When all else fails in disciplining an inmate, be it loss of visits, free time or other privileges, deputies turn to this bland log of meat and vegetables to get the disruptive inmate to follow the rules.

But the Confinement Loaf that Zappa was worried about - I haven't got Ike Willis's explanation of it in front of me now, so I can't scan it, I can only paraphrase:-

it contained saltpeter amongst other things, and its objective was to impair testosterone production, to "make sure their Telefunken U47's stay nice and calm" - but, the trouble was, it was causing permanent damage - chemically castrating prisoners (i.e chemically castrating those prisoners who were only in the nick for tax evasion or something).

And the governor of the prison where it was first tried out chose to ignore this fact in his report, and carried on recommending it to other prisons.

I suppose you approve of that?!

Can I get better proof than an explanation from Ike Willis that you can't scan? (PS - the saltpeter thing is a myth, so I'm not exactly accepting what you're saying as the truth)

It's in an issue of Society Pages (the US version, which only ran to about 12 issues) that Ike talks about the dangerous confinement loaf - CNN was one of his sources of information.
