LA Archbishop Visits Los Angeles County Jail on Xmas,0,7998859.story

Santa, as usual, was a no-show at the Men's Central Jail.

In his place Sunday came three presumably wise men — Archbishop Jose Gomez, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and Sheriff's Capt. Ralph Ornelas, making their way down long, dimly lit rows of cellblocks to dispense Christmas cheer. At least, as much as was possible in a place where one day is pretty much like the last.


Wonderful story!
