The other night I channel surfed a bit before turning in, and came across a women's NCAA basketball tournament game between Stanford and Xavier. The game was close, but I looked at it for all of about 30 seconds then switched it off.

Every year, thousands of people are put away for long prison terms because of arcane and racist sentencing laws. They punish people caught with crack cocaine -- who are often Black and poor -- 100 times more harshly than those caught with powder cocaine.
