Effective coverage of California's (unique?) sentencing and correction realities

The Los Angeles Times has recently published two notable lengthy article discussing some of California's most notable sentencing and corrections policies.  Here are links along with the headlines and subheadings of these pieces:

These pieces have me thinking and wondering whether folks interested in a more progressive and humane modern criminal justice in California and nationwide ought to be more committed to and invested in three-strikes sentencing reform or solitary-confinement corrections reform.  

Do readers California or elsewhere have strong opinions as to which "problem" is more deserving of advocacy attention and/or more politically viable for real and lasting legal reforms?
