Still Capable Of Learning

It's nice to realize that you are, though it also highlights that you used to be an idiot. So it's a mixed blessing.

Anyway, my hope is that the tide continues to turn (it has, I think, if slowly) against the mass incarceration project this country has been engaged in for decades. It isn't that I wasn't aware of it as a problem before, it's that I now have a much greater sense of how it's the nexus of a whole system of racist horror. Let's fix it.
