Regarding the appropriateness of sniping in the press by Preet Bharara, I’m having a problem generating the right amount of sarcasm for the comment I want to make. Here it goes anyway (please read in a southern dandy accent). “A grand standing prosecutor angling for higher office!?!?! What is the world coming to? Pass me a mint julep I do declare that I am coming down with a case of the vapors.”
