How Can America Reduce Mass Incarceration?

Julian Adler, co-author of 'Start Here,' and Judge Victoria Pratt discuss alternatives to jail, including community service, social services and even personal essays. Adler and his co-author Greg Berman write, jails "are accelerants of human misery.

Rock critic Ken Tucker reviews the album 'Hive Mind' by the band The Internet.
