Irish engineering college student Patrick Devine was working in Senegal when he got chicken pox, and had part of his toe amputated. But that was just the beginning of a bad week. At the end of it, he got put in a Senegalese prison. His infraction? He mooned the governor's house on a dare -- apparently not a humorous college prank in that part of the world, but a crime punishable by jail time. For three weeks, he's been sharing a cramped cell with 40 other prisoners, and there's no end in sight. Diplomats are working on it, from Nigeria, but it's tough to know when Devine, 19, will be released.
