Women continued to make small gains in the number of judgeship positions held nationwide this year - particularly in Maryland - though they're far from reaching parity with men, according to a report released Monday. Roughly 27.1 percent of the country's state and federal judges are female, up from 26.6 percent in 2011 and 26.1 percent in 2010, a study from the University at Albany Center for Women in Government & Civil Society showed. The increase was led by a small rise of 0.7 percent in state judgeships and offset slightly by a decline of 0.1 percent in federal positions.

And a war on people of color, targeting them with drone strike efficiency. We never call it any of those things, though all of them fit. No, we call it the War on Drugs. It is a 42-year, trillion-dollar disaster that has done nothing -- underscore that: absolutely nothing -- to stem the inexhaustible supply of, and insatiable demand for, illegal narcotics.
