"We Won't Forget How You Voted": on the death of the DREAM Act (but not the death of the dream): "This one idea, compassion even for your alleged enemies, is what convinces me that passing the DREAM Act is not a matter of if but rather a matter of when.

"The American Constitution Society has run a new piece by Wilbert Rideau, describing his time in solitary confinement. As the ACS’s introduction describes him, 'Wilbert Rideau is author of In the Place of Justice: A Story of Punishment and Deliverance, a memoir that recounts his 44 years in prison, where he became a journalist and won several journalism awards, including a George Polk Award and the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel. He was freed in 2005.'" via.
