Don't worry your pretty head

You remember the warden who found himself on mandatory leave earlier this month after venting his frustration about the highly dangerous work conditions at his Bessemer prison? Well, Alabama Department of Corrections officials want you to know that it's not what you think.

You see, they placed him on leave for his own good under the Americans With Disabilities Act. He was tired, you know, and he just needed a few mandatory good nights of sleep. And prison officials were feeling so benevolent that they decided to wait 13 days before worrying his troubled mind by telling him why he wasn't allowed to come to work anymore. It's a perfectly natural thing to do, and how dare you suggest that the scathing media coverage played any role in this internal personnel matter.
