Iowa prisons remain unjust

This is a quote from an article printed in *The Black Commentator*, a weekly e-magazine, about incarceration in Iowa in 2005:

"The crime control industries in Wisconsin and Iowa seem to have learned to make the most efficient use of the preferred human material available to them, locking up the few black inhabitants of those states at a rate 11.6 times higher than whites."

Not much has changed in 2011. If there was truly justice in the justice system we would not have overcrowded, understaffed prisons.

Looking for a guardian angel

My husband disappeared from our home in Muscatine on July 4. I did everything I knew of to locate him. On July 8, he showed up at UIHC emergency room in a taxi cab. Someone had found him, realized he needed help, and put him in the taxi.

Please, if you are this wonderful person, contact me at wlkrpvy@machlink.com. I really need to thank you.
