BIG Day has started in Washington, D.C.

Good morning. As you can infer from some of my posts, I worked until about 0400, about five hours ago, and hit the rack. Now time to roll. I suspect this will be a very big turnout for President Trump. Also there is much noise and indicators that BLAMTIFA will attack. I will not live stream today but will make updates. Tomorrow, I will head to Arlington to pay respects. Next day, may stay in D.C. for another day or so, or fly straight to New York, or Portland. (Unknown at this time) Wa...

Highlighting arguments that incarcerated persons should be high on the list for the COVID vaccines

I have been pleased to see recently more than a few commentaries making the case for making sure persons in prisons and jails have access to the coming COVID vaccines.  Here is a round up of some of these recent pieces: From America: The Jesuit Review, "A Covid-19 vaccine has finally arrived. Prisoners must be prioritized." From The Appeal, "People in Prisons and Jails Should get COVID-19 Vaccines as Early as Possible" From the News-Gazette, "Vaccinating inmates — early — would be small step on ...

"Think-tank Brookings has posted pie charts of previous administrations’ appointees (white, black, Asian, Hispanic, Indian and Arab), the better to keep track of whether Biden will beat his predecessors in the race race."

"Last week, the NAACP and black Congressional leaders voiced their disappointment that only one of the eight cabinet appointees whom Biden had so far announced was black — despite the fact that black Americans constitute just about exactly one-eighth of the population (if we’re going to be that way — and it seems we are).... Races, sexes, sexual identity cadres and the disabled are being incentivized to operate like trade unions or lobbying factions, whose interests are mutually exclusive and wh...

"If you can’t annoy somebody … there’s little point in writing" —Kingsley Amis/"Whatever they criticize you for, intensify it" —Jean Cocteau.

A couple quotes that jumped out at me from "Garner's Quotations: A Modern Miscellany," a book I'm enjoying immensely. Garner is Dwight Garner, a NYT book critic. It's a very smart sequence of quotations.  Just a few more: "I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it."—William S. Burroughs  "Thank God for books as an alternative to conversation" —W. H.

"Institutionalizing inequality in the courts: Decomposing racial and ethnic disparities in detention, conviction, and sentencing"

The title of this post is the title of this recent article published in the latest issue of Criminology authored by Marisa Omori and Nick Petersen.  Here is its abstract: A significant body of literature has examined racial and ethnic inequalities in sentencing, focusing on how individual court actors make decisions, but fewer scholars have examined whether disparities are institutionalized through legal case factors.  After finding racial and ethnic inequalities in pretrial detention, convicti...

"Speaking to Mehdi Nasiri, the former editor-in-chief of an ultraconservative daily close to Iran's Supreme Leader, Ahmadinejad posed the question, 'If the parliament has passed a law, but the majority of the people rejected it, can one say that I would apply it at any cost?'"

Now in exile in Germany, he is part of a landmark first prosecution for war crimes against Bashar al-Assad’s regimeAnwar al-Bunni had only been in Germany a couple of months when he walked into a shop and found himself face to face with the man he believes had interrogated and jailed him nearly a decade earlier.
