I am very honored that you invited me to address your conference this morning. I have developed a very high regard for NASADAD, and for the work that you do throughout the country. You represent, in my view, a critical perspective on the issues that concern us at the National Institute of Justice -- the issues of crime and the administration of justice -- and I think it fair to say that all of us in the criminal justice professions -- researchers and practitioners alike -- are just now coming to realize the importance of the contributions that you can make.
