Short Description: 
Farewell, American democracy. We hardly knew ye. Abe dicusses the latest in the debt ceiling debacle

The triumph of the ruling class is at hand. With a vote in Washington looming, the America in which we have all grown up is primed for sacrifice on the altar of tax cuts and deficit reduction. Congressional Republicans threatened to blow up the global economy unless they got exactly what they wanted -- and the president gave it to them. Our political system is wholly, finally, broken.

Misguided Measures

It's been 15 years since Oregon voters passed Measure 11, setting mandatory sentences in criminal cases. Just as a new Governor's Commission on Public Safety begins examining prison costs and their causes, a new report by the Partnership for Safety and Justice (PSJ) and the Campaign for Youth Justice says Measure 11 has meant more Oregon youths being charged as adults.

Associate Director and co-author of the report, as well as Matt (last name omitted). Matt spent seven and a half years in the Oregon Youth Authority. He shares some of his experiences with Measure 11 and his time at the McLaren youth facility in Woodburn.

Conservatism: the gnawing fear that someone, somewhere, might be having a good time.

In this episode, Megan Vosk interviewed Grace Eagle Reed about the importance of creative expression in the prisons. Grace discussed how the journey of interpersonal conflict produces chances for better choices by at-risk youth. She shared her experience teaching writing and poetry at the Residential Alcohol/Drug (RAD) Community Justice Juvenile Services from 2006-2008.

The severe life struggles of the students inspired creativity and allowed space for an open ended process to happen. Grace and the students came together in a state of hard earned trust and talked from the heart on those magic days in Portland, Oregon.
