My older brother (Colorado): If you want to see a great movie about Texas politics, civil rights, and a very brave, strong young woman, I highly recommend "American Violet"!

I'd add: And about this catastrophic "War on Drugs" in our country.

Great movie. I actually spoke with the woman whom this movie is based on and we are in the process of scheduling a speaking engagement. Speaks to how broken our systems are even in 2010.

Nice to have a 2nd opinion. I look forward to seeing it.

Actually, the system is not broken from those profiting from it. Private prisons are based on a simple economic model: They need prisoners, for which the tax payer pays very dearly. So--time to conjure up some prisoners. Not enough prisoners to keep the profits rolling in? Arrest/frame innocent people, incarcerate, and the taxpayer foots the bill.

A pretty easy way to make money, with all of us paying for it.
