In Texas, even the prisoners are entrepreneurs

Given how hard it is for a con to get a job and how many of them have experience with "business," this seems like an excellent idea:

As Christopher Holbert danced down the aisle of a Cleveland Correctional Center classroom, dozens of other prisoners in matching dark blue uniforms flanked him, clapping and cheering. When he reached the front of the classroom, he spoke for 10 minutes on his business plan for Adrenaline Indoor Paintball, an idea he worked on over the last year.

With three investors lined up, he plans to create the company when he returns to the Dallas area. But first he has to finish his three-year sentence for arson.

There is always time.
