kite
 n.— «Fillion discounted the idea that inmate poverty might hinder medical care. He mentioned a process where inmates submit a “kite,” a chit in jail parlance, to see a doctor. “It’s a very nominal fee to be seen,” he said of a $2 infirmary charge.» —“Inmates, employees smell a problem” by Bruce Schuknecht Journal-Advocate (Sterling, Col.) July 9, 2004.
