ERRATA: Last week, we incorrectly listed the Mothers in Prison, Children in Crisis rally as taking place on Friday, May 9. The correct date is Friday, May 7. See http://www.drcnet.org/wol/079.html#rally for the rest of the information. Please pass this correction along to anyplace your forwarded the original article.

NOTE: In issue #77, we provided an 800 number for the American Bar Association, to order copies of their report on the ineffectivess of increased penalties on drug use (http://www.drcnet.org/wol/077.html#abastudy). If you've had trouble getting through on the 800 number, try their direct number at (312) 988-5000. Also check out the ABA's report on the federalization of crime (article at http://www.drcnet.org/wol/079.html).
