13th **1/2 Most of us can agree that it is bad for a society to have too many people behind bars. And it is a sad fact that the United States is the worst culprit.

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I am having a hard time today deciding what to write about. I have always made it my policy not to write about anything that is just too controversial to put on paper.
