Math Is Hard!

From an article about noted failed Presidential assassin and Jodie Foster aficionado John Hinckley, Jr.:
Hinckley, who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan in March 1981, is currently allowed to leave St. Elizabeths Hospital for 10 days each month to visit his mother's home in a gated community in Williamsburg, Virginia. St. Elizabeths' proposal calls for that to increase to two visits of 17 days and then to be upped again to six visits of 24 days.
If a hospital in Virginia has found a way to fit 34 days into a single month -- and has plans to increase that to 144 days in the near future -- I would suggest that is a much more newsworthy event than the petty details of Hinckley's incarceration.
