Tuesday, February 19: Rhodes Scholar ignores the Green New Deal, prefers to keep locking them up!This week, we move to "the southern frontiers"—to the boundaries of the rational impulse displayed by our species and tribe.

Thursday, February 21: Nineteen to 24 years in the clink! Plus, targets on two more lawyers.
