Dr. Jerz,

I glanced over the department of justice handout. How bad is it if I am even more confused about the justice system now than I was before? I read some parts, checked out the graph, and I am still really confused. I hope that we take some time and go over this on Wednesday, because I am absolutely lost.

Jay, I haven't used that chart in teaching before, so I wasn't sure how it would be received. Since this is just a preview of the chart, it's good that we can talk about it here, so you won't be confused about it the night before we *need* it.

Reading the technical stuff below the chart confused me, as well... But if I simply look at the chart itself, I can make some sense of it.

Crime is the "cash crop" for reporters in that field wouldn't you say? Let me know. http://blogs.setonhill.edu/KevinHinton/2005/10/a_lucritive_bus.html

Um, ignore that one trackback. See what happens when you have too many windows open? You link to the wrong assignment...

*sigh* I hate everything.
