n.— «The teens who leave, more often than not before they graduate, are like the unsafe factory walls, only instead of demolition the state remedy for them is prison, and instead of stray bricks to walk around on the sidewalks there are young men pitching crack or heroine, and young women selling what they have to sell in order to buy it.» —“Independence Mall Vigil for Peace Report #86″ by Kathryn Gordon Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Penn.) Jan. 14, 2001.
