Lots of interesting recent reform commentary on lots of different topics

I am in the midst of one of those weeks in which I have too little time to follow the criminal justice news, let alone effectively blog about highlights. Consequently, I am going to start "hump day" today with a (too) quick round up of some interesting commentary I have seen from interesting folks on interesting topics.  In alphabetical order by author:

By Erwin Chemerinsky, "The death penalty is now unconstitutional in Washington state. California should be next"

By Seth Ferranti "How Men in Prison Reacted to Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation"

By Newt Gingrich and Van Jones, "[Ohio] Issue 1 tackles opioid epidemic, puts politics aside"

By Kevin Ring, "I once wrote mandatory minimum laws. After ties to Abramoff landed me in prison, I know they must end."

 By Sally Yates, "Don't let Trump's use of celebrities distract you from his criminal-justice failures"

By Steve Zeidman, "Let more juvie felons out: Raise the Age is only a first step"
