    Why Geocaching is the Perfect Sport for Readers

    Libraries have picked up on readers’ interest. Librarians and staff in many different states have placed caches in their libraries in an effort to encourage reading and visits. They are some of the most fun caches out there. Not only are you likely to visit a new library but you are almost always required to do some creative thinking in order to find the actual spot (even after you have found the library).

    Human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson represents those who have been abandoned. His clients are people on death row — abused and neglected children who were prosecuted as adults and placed in adult prisons where they were beaten and sexually abused, and mentally disabled people whose illnesses helped land them in prison where their special needs were unmet.

    Today he spoke to us about justice in the 21st century:

    "The new statistic from the Justice [Department] is really disheartening: The Justice Department is now reporting that one in three black male babies born in the 21st century is expected to go to jail or prison. The statistic for Latino boys is one in six. That statistic was not true in the 20th century. It was not true in the 19th century. It didn’t become true until the 21st century. That means we have enormous work to do to improve our commitment to society that is not haunted and undermined and corrupted by our legacy of racial inequality.”
