Prison Nation

Not only does the U.S. do a quarter of the world’s drugs and burn a quarter of the world’s gasoline – amazing for a country that’s only home to 1/20 of the world’s humans – the U.S.  incarcerates a quarter of the world’s prisoners: 2.3 million people in all. It’s evolved into a for-profit industry with a powerful lobby that must be de-legitimized. We need this to stop, and Sen. Jim Webb looks like the man with the right plan. Also I’m very leery about the shirtless guy in the photo below.
