Lede of the week

"It was the second time Antwan had been arrested for car theft in three weeks.

"Wearing an unironed shirt and loose tie, the 13-year-old swaggered into Juvenile Court in Markham."

The first four paragraphs are just perfect. Writing like this gives me hope.

Not unrelated: Amazing NPR piece on the completely broken California prison system, via Balloon Juice, where John Cole's post on the failure of health care reform is also a must-read.
