Flap over revolving funds doesn't change needs of Department of Corrections

Now in his eighth year as director and his 37th with DOC, Jones has never given a reason to believe he's anything other than a dedicated public servant doing the best he can for his overburdened agency. This flap shouldn't change that. The shame would be if it prompts legislators to discount Jones' future requests for help, because the needs are real and ongoing.
