Yes, Max does regularly bless us with his wisdom.
If he wins, I expect he’ll be nearly insufferable for a while – but that will be a small price we all must bear for justice. So, in a manner of speaking, I’m looking forward to it.

Start with the letter “B” and work up to the net worth of GE/NBC/Universal. Then double it.

It reminds me of the complaint against Nifong, the careful cataloging and documentation of the demonization of another person, and the interplay between hyperbolic media reports, statements by public officials, and legal action.

That said, the politics swirling about this case are deeper than those around the Duke case.

The reality is that the set of people who take their opinions from TV shows may not intersect the set of people who understand nuances of editing: the TV shows evoked a particular set of powerful emotions among the credulous – emotions that ipso facto are unlikely to be affected by textual reasoning.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Jewell

The jury pool here in Central Florida has been terribly tainted. Just recently, the color pictures were released, of a bloodied and beaten up Zimmerman getting out of a police car on the night of the incident. Apparently the prosecutors decided that showing just had badly Zimmerman was beaten by Trayon Martin might have been prejudicial. Of course, the lead prosecutor praying with the dead man’s family before throwing the book at Zimmerman, why, that’s just good lawyering.

In a just world, those who feed unjustified conspiracy theories and racial discord would be whacked in the head.
