Conrad Black in Club Fed: Sounds Kind of Pleasant Actually…

Here's a fun Q&A with Conrad Black — the former medial mogul turned convict who's one year into a six year prison sentence in Florida.  Describing a typical day, Black says:

I get up just after 7 except on the weekends and holidays when
it is possible to sleep in. I eat some granola and go to my workplace
where I tutor high school-leaving candidates, one-on-one, though
sometimes I have to deal with up to four at a time, around my desk, and
talk with fellow tutors and other convivial people. I lunch around 11
with friends from education, work on e-mails, play the piano for 30 to
60 minutes, return to my tutoring tasks by 1, return to my unit at 3,
deal with more e-mails, rest from 4 to 6, eat dinner in the unit then,
and go for a walk in the compound or recreation yard for a couple of
hours, drinking coffee well-made by Colombian fellow-residents, and
come back into the residence about 8:30, deal with e-mails and
whatever, have my shower etc., around midnight, read until 1-1:30 a.m.
and go to sleep. On the weekends it is pretty open.

Wow…  Doesn't sound half bad.  (Except that I'm sure he misses his 68-year-old-who-somehow-looks-about-40ish wife.)
