New look



The Innocence Institute launched its new Web site today, which is a dramatic improvement over the ugly old site. Basically, the look has been revamped to match the main Point Park page. As you can see, I thought it was a good time to change the look of the blog to match.

For now, the content of the Web site stays the same. Eventually, we'll be posting court files, police reports and other source documents from our cases.

And if you're wondering above the identity of the Asian guy on the front, he isn't from one of our cases. He's just one of the random Point Parkers whose images are being used on its sites.

Behind bars, online

The Pennsylvania Prison Society launched its new Web site last week. The group has been an advocate for the state's prisoners and their families for over 200 years. It helps monitor prison conditions and promotes reforms. The site includes copies of the group's publication, Graterfriends, which prints stories written by inmates. Last month's issue includes an article on how Pennsylvania has eliminated a musical rehabilitation program in its prisons.
