KILLING TIME

Gitmo Inmates Turn to ‘Fresh Prince’

Sure, they’re being held indefinitely in a foggy legal limbo—but at least the inmates at Guantanamo have good entertainment options. Apparently their tastes are shifting away from the Harry Potter books, long a favorite of the inmates, to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, the old sitcom starring Will Smith, which a librarian has said he is ordering the full run of. Another previous favorite: President Obama’s The Audacity of Hope. The offerings are part of a library of 28,000 books and videos in seven languages, mostly Arabic, Pashto, English, and French, and apparently the inmates partake not just for entertainment, but to learn English.
