More good

In keeping with my occasional theme of talking about things that are going right in West Virginia, a friend sent me the following link about a project of Laotong Yoga in which some mutual friends teach yoga classes to inmates of the WV Division of Corrections. The program is popular with administrators as well as male and female inmates. Click on the link and you'll find some glowing testimonies to the mental, physical and social benefits of the practice on and off the mat.

AND HERE'S AN EARLIER INTERVENTION...The American Academy of  Pediatrics has a simple prescription for kids as young as infants: read aloud to them.
