To quote Barney Fife

Nip it. Nip it in the bud.

This new talk by some legislators of privatizing state prisons. We've been down that disastrous road once. To save the state money, the operation has to cut corners somewhere, lots of them, for the private operator to make big bucks. The operators also have to offset the cost of filling the overflowing cups of helpful legislators.

Nip it.
