3. I'm glad this is getting attention

You're much more optimistic than me, regarding all of this, but I regard any steps toward better policy as a good thing.

Since Congress has created legislation to address problems with sentencing, etc., I think Holder's announcements are intended to show the Justice Dept. is on board with those modifications to existing drug sentencing laws.

It's a move in the right direction.
