President Obama changed the sentences of 111 federal inmates on Tuesday in an effort to correct a disparity created when Congress shortened the sentences for drug crimes. It is no secret drug sentences are harsher than needed and are due for a makeover.

Many of the inmates were serving life sentences for nonviolent drug crimes—an error Obama is gallantly trying to eradicate.
