Cheryl I so enjoy listening to Steven Levitt. First heard him at the Blackboard conference and became a fan. Since this involves direct quotes from gangs, there is some story-specific dirty language. Overall, an excellent video from the TedTalks. I'm so glad they decided to share, it has given me opportunities I wouldn't have had any other way.
