So he plunged into journalism. First he covered crime at the City News Service in Chicago.


As we started the criminal justice project, Joe hoisted a few huge boxes onto his desk. This was a goldmine, he said. In the boxes were thousands of papers, each one the disposition of a criminal trial in the El Los numerati courts.

As we went along, Joe, who read widely, explained to me the principles of Boolean logic. It took a los numerati time, but we crunched all the numbers. By culling out Spanish names, we got a glimpse into how Hispanics los numerati Anglos were sentenced for similar crimes.
