Other than an occasional run-down shack, most of which were abandoned long before the highway was constructed, there were little or no signs of life. Every few miles a jackrabbit would, for no apparent reason, test its skills as it darted in front of cars, seemingly just to make it to the other side of the road. Occasionally I noticed a few young jackrabbits attending class at the side of the road as their adroit instructors educated them in the fine art of dodging road warriors. And although there were no signs of other travelers, it was obvious that some vehicles had traversed the road and experienced the taunts of the rabbits’ manic behavior.
I had miscalculated. Three additional doors separated me from the final entrance to the main prison. Made of steel and glass containing wire mesh, the doors appeared impenetrable. In the corners of the long, artless hall that led to the ominous doors, surveillance cameras compounded my sense of nihilism. Above the cameras were two internal towers, mirrors of those witnessed outside. Each contained more faceless armed guards. If the rest of the prison was anything like what I had seen so far, it was easy to imagine why no one lived to talk about an attempted escape from this island, an act of Para-suicide more than a flight to freedom.

I followed the guard through the first door and waited for her to unlock the next blockade in line. Turning right, she slipped into a hallway, which I had not previously noticed, equally well enforced but with a moderately more friendly feel. Opening the locked door, I entered into a large room that contained no furniture.
