Prison Reform: Bravo for Jim Webb

The prison system American gulag is a national disgrace (as is the vile War on Drugs). Consider the fraction of the population that's incarcerated. Consider the public attitude: don't bend over for the soap nyuk nyuk hyuk. Reminescent of the Roman mob.

To his great credit, Jim Webb, to whom I donated when he knocked off the Great Theocratic Hope George MacacAllen, is risking significant political capital on doing something about it. See here, here and here.

Addendum. Webb was mentioned as a vice-presidential nominee and has campaigned with Obama. Is he doing this with Obama's support or at his instigation? (Because Obama does not want to get accused of playing racial politics.) The possibility warrants mention.

Whatever. I strongly support what Webb is doing.
