Mandatory life without parole

Mandatory life without parole

I have a secret love affair with NPR and some of their programs especially Wait, wait… Don’t Tell Me and All Things Considered. Regardless, today I listened to a very brief NPR program called Brain Science Behind Youth Life Sentence Ruling. It honestly had little, to no science in it. It simply explained that the supreme court recently ruled that mandatory life without parole for juveniles who are convicted of murder is unconstitutional.

I have the Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer which has absolutely changed my baking life. My sister Shalini bought it for me and it makes baking really fast and easy. It is a little pricey, but I promise it is worth it. It comes in really fun colors too!! (Sorry I took this photo off my Facebook and it is all blurry, but I love it anyway because it is right after I unwrapped my mixer!!!) 2. Good cake...
