Putting Pressure On Already Overcrowded Prisons

The Cheshire slayings this summer are rapidly becoming Connecticut's 9/11 - subject to endless political manipulation, used to justify hastily conceived and unreasonable so-called "reforms."

Defining 'Ethnic,' As In "Ethnic Paranoia"

Can 'ethnic' be used to refer to Jews? The Sun was for excluding Jews as ethnic before it was against it.

As an aside, doesn't the phrase "ethnic panic" originally come from Wieseltier? (I recall Ron Rosenbaum inanely accusing Wieseltier of "second Holocaust denial" for daring to suggest with this phrase that there might be a price to pay for crying wolf about Ahmadinejad...)
