Around the blogs

Several recent posts from other blogs deserve Grits readers attention, starting with Texas Prison Bidness which has these private prison-related nuggets:
At Dallas Sidebar, Proximo wonders why the Dallas County Commissioners Court thinks they get to micromanage activities of other elected officials. I've wondered that, too.

At the Friends of Justice blog, Lydia Bean offers a thoughtful post on the New Testament book of Philemon and its relevance to modern civil rights struggles.

The Deception Blog has an excellent post on using MRI brain scans for purposes of lie detection, concluding that recent arguments that such technology may soon be reliable enough to become admissible in US courts are "way off-beam."
