Op-Ed on the Prison Budget Cuts
Our recent posts and discussion of the budget cuts made me think more generally about how the financial crisis can be an opportunity to reverse the punitive pendulum. My op-ed in the San Francisco Bay Guardian offers some ideas in that direction, which may not be new to readers of this blog. I hope we'll be able to rise to the occasion and make the most of what is a very dire situation.
