HR Strange But True!
May 27, 2005

Since April, former Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland has been serving a 1-year prison term for corruption. But he hasn't been sitting around, doing nothing, inside the minimum-security federal prison in Loretto, Pennsylvania. He's been working - and you just might see the fruits of that labor in a job interview sometime soon.

That's because Rowland, 48, has been giving instruction on interviewing and other employment-related skills to a class of 26 fellow prisoners whose terms will end shortly, according to a Connecticut newspaper, the Record-Journal of Meriden.

When he's not teaching, seeing visitors during the weekends, or reading, the one-time rising star of the Republican Party sits and tries to figure out how he can be of service when his punishment ends, said the Rev. Will Marotti, a spiritual adviser who visits him.

"I think he sees this as part of a larger plan for his life, not an enjoyable experience, but perhaps a necessary one," Marotti told the Record-Journal.
