Attica, 1971

I don’t know how many of you are old enough to remember the riot at Attica Prison in New York State.

Adam Gopnik at The New Yorker has reviewed two books (one new, the other published five years ago) on the topic, and offers perspective on an issue which stirs up each person’s emotions differently.  Please consider reading this fairly long piece, and try to keep an open mind.
