An amateurish attempt at explaining current events large and small.

I haven't looked at many of the pardons in detail but one of the things that is striking is the extent to which the pardons relate to drug related offenses. In fact he just pardoned John Forte of the Fugees for Coke possession (lots of Coke). But the shame in this is that Bush could have done something in office to push for more rational sentencing guidelines regarding non-violent drug crimes but didn't do a blessed thing.
