Statistic of the Day
This country houses a quarter of the world's prisoners in its corrections system. —Bureau of Justice Statistics, Census Bureau, as quoted by Dan McGinn
The American Promise
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
And I will put their sorry asses in jail.
Prescient, don't you think? (1/20/05)
