For two and a half years, Emily Bazelon has been following people through a special court in New York designed to be a speedy machine for the harsh punishment of illegal gun possession. Along the way, a strange thing happened — the politics outside the courtroom started to change when a new generation of activists and insiders began challenging the old system the gun court was part of. Season 1 of Slate Presents brought you the story of Ruby Ridge, and Season 2 brings you a fight to transform one big-city justice system.<br><br>Subscribe to ChargedLearn more about your ad choices.

The problem with this guy's argument against weighting college athletics is that college athletes DO tend to perform higher than the average non-athlete post-graduation. Athletics promotes personal values such as hard work, loyalty, teamwork, perseverance, delayed gratification, etc. that translates into well into post-college life. There are, of course, outliers on both sides, but when taking the groups as a whole, this guy's argument falls on its face. The data exists. Learn it.

There is a large sense of pleasure as Emily Bazelon does a savage takedown of Bush Sr. I'm frustrated with how often people ignore negative aspects of a person who died

please, please, please! the UPTALK by one of the speakers is SO pronounced, and detracted so much from a very timely and otherwise very thoughtful discussion, that i could not listen to the end!
