What they're reading at the Harris County probation department

A political acquaintance emails this fun news:
I was at a criminal justice seminar at the University of Houston Clear Lake and the speaker was with the Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department and they passed out a blog you wrote regarding probation reform in Harris County Texas. ... The probation department has your blog info and is distributing it to their staff.
Nice to know SOMEBODY's reading this stuff. :-) Here's what Grits has published recently on the topic of Harris County jail overcrowding.
