The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

There's a hard rain gonna fall... we begin seeing people come out of prison as fast as they have been going in for 35 years.

Here are two minutes of film that will make you want to see more.

A documentary of America's greatest current shame (amid some serious contenders for that honor), The House I Live In is debuting at Sundance tonight. Probably see it on PBS during the next few months. Probably available on NetFlix within six months.

Recommended Winter TV Show for when you want to see something good: Rent the entire five seasons of The Wire.
