How prison is like a small town: lack of anonymity

That was a comparison made in this NPR story yesterday.  The transcript is not online, but the quote I wrote down went something like this:  Prison is like a small town.  Everyone knows everyone else's business.

This is relevant because the story is about distributing playing cards featuring details of unsolved crimes in the hope that some prisoner will have information that can help to solve the crime.
