NY Times Editorial Discovers the Obvious

There are days when the New York Times just infuriates this Maine voter. Today's editorial writers have read and written with approval about an excellent report from the Vera Institute on state criminal justice reform, and noted, "Gee!  Look what state governments are doing on criminal justice!  Who knew?" Just back myself from Indianapolis where I keynoted a gathering of state leaders convened by the In. AG at a law school deeply committed to on the ground justice, and having noted last week the statements of the ND AG, perhaps a little less myopia and a little more getting out of New York City by the grey lady is in order.
