Quote For The Day

I don't do much national politics any more but this one is too good to pass up.
"Let's start with a premise that I don't think a lot of Americans are aware of. We have five percent of the world's population; we have 25 percent of the world's known prison population. There are only two possibilities here: either we have the most evil people on earth living in the United States; or we are doing something dramatically wrong in terms of how we approach the issue of criminal justice," - Jim Webb
Chew on that a minute. I bet you can guess my solution.

I've just come to the conclusion that we're a nation of morons.

Anyone know what percentage of our prison population is there solely on drug charges?
