It's well known that no one wants Gitmo's rejects imprisoned in their back yard, right? NIMBY is alive and well, you say? Not so fast.

Harden, Montana has a super-maximum security prison sitting empty and the citizens of the town are asking the government to house 100 of them there. Finally, some sanity. The good people of Harden realize that any convicts from Gitmo are no different from other vile criminals: They're not aliens, they don't have superpowers. They need the same things other prisoners do: three hots; a cot; and solid, reinforced, heavy concrete.

NIMBY be gone. This is PIMBY. Please In My Back Yard.

Definitely *not* absurd.
