Running a jail is about much more than processing and housing people awaiting trial. At larger facilities, efficiency, personnel management, and resource allocation may mean the difference between swift and delayed justice. Now, some administrators are setting a new goal: making their jails run more like companies.

When it came time for the pre-publication legal review for my most recent book, I had an idea of what to expect, or so I thought. I was right about one thing: The review was a veritable inquisition.

The 68 layoffs announced last week at the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services were accompanied by plans to close a program serving people who are homeless or getting out of psychiatric hospitals or prison, to eliminate an intensive team that works with people living in the community who have mental health or substance issues, and to end a behavioral health program for veterans.

As an all-volunteer force, the military is under pressure to become a more family-friendly employer, and thus more able to attract and retain talent. That talent increasingly has included women, whose long slog toward equal opportunity in the armed forces has quickened in recent years, as the Pentagon has lifted gender-based restrictions on military service and allowed women to fill combat positions.

Reports continue to tell of repression of rights lawyers and dissidents — lawyer Pu Zhiqiang was formally disbarred earlier this month — but little is said of other serious illegalities that should provoke concern. Notably, human rights groups have long charged that one of the crudest examples of illegality in Chinese criminal procedure is the political use of psychiatry to detain, imprison, and forcibly medicate dissidents and activists.

The event, organized by friends of Kong, was a tribute to the junior finance major, but it was much more than that. It, as well as the change.org petition signed by more than 3,500 people, was a respectful yet virulent response to the way Penn’s administration announced Kong’s death.

Apart from an increasingly small number of primary care physicians (PCPs), most physicians specialize in particular biological systems (e.g., cardiology) or diseases (e.g., oncology). While this focus can be contributed to increases in human life expectancy over the last 100 years, a large part of the picture may be missing. At least three trends urge a “reset” in both the study and practice of medicine that

Beyond such personal treacheries and dismemberments is a wider depiction of victimhood, not individual but national.
