“Kudos to the Los Angeles Times for its editorial today about Brittney Griner, the U.S. basketball star who is serving a 9-year jail sentence in Russia for possessing a small quantity of marijuana. Griner was recently transferred to a Russian penal colony to serve out her sentence. According to people who have been in such colonies, they are extremely nasty places to be. As I was reading its editorial, I was thinking to myself that this was going to be just another U.S. mainstream media article calling on those evil Russkies to release Griner and send her home. But then I got to the end of the editorial and was stunned. … Here is a U.S. mainstream media outlet that is actually criticizing U.S. drug laws and implicitly exposing the rank hypocrisy behind such laws in the context of the Griner case. How often do you see that? I dare say not very often.” (11/11/22)
