Congress to Do Something About Prison Reform?
Well, at least Virginia Senator Jim Webb is introducing a bill to create a commission. Maybe, in some distant and optimized future, that will lead to meaningful action. The numbers cited on Sen. Webb's page announcing the legislation are pretty eye-popping. If you want to get an idea of how truly screwed up things are, read some of the articles linked at the bottom of the page. Here's hoping Webb can generate some meaningful reform that would make Buyout impossible instead of just sort of improbable.
