Two quick items

Light-to-no posting will probably continue for a few more days. Since we're already here, though, two items of interest from the NY Times.

First, a prisoner rights case is climbing to the highest appellate levels. It seems NY had a system, recently changed, of adding fees to the collect calls leaving NY's prisons.

Second, the Supreme Court is going to hear a case related to the NY judicial selection process. Complaints in the past few years, including indictments in Brooklyn for illegal acts, have cast a negative light on the current system of nominating conventions.
