Sympathy greeting cards for your friends and relatives doing hard time.

Terrye Cheathem, a criminal defense lawyer and adviser to the Los
Angeles Sheriff's Department, has developed a line of greeting cards
for a Hallmark-ignored demographic: the recently incarcerated.

Amongher selections are cards reading "Sorry to hear about your arrest,"
and "Honestly, I never knew anyone who was arrested before," and,
simply, "Not You!" A remorseful correspondent could choose: "I know
that I have not visited you. But I still care about you ... When are
you getting out, anyway?"

Card sales are slow, according to an October Los Angeles Times story,
and Cheathem acknowledges that people might prefer to ignore their
connections to criminals.
