I'm glad somebody said it

I've gotten pretty disenchanted with one of my favorite blogs, Shakespeare's Sister, especially since it became Shakesville.com, but I must say that it is still a gateway to some of the most interesting content on the web, like this excellent post about Mike Nifong and the Duke rape case from Sports Law Blog.

I'm the last one to endorse out-of-control prosecutors. There's no case against the players, and I'm happy to see them walk. But the way they've been portrayed as innocent victims in all this makes me queasy.

Agreed. Whether a crime was committed that night or not, to paraphrase Nifong, "something" happened at the house and it definitely wasn't pretty. I don't see anything admirable about the players.

Ditto, Bozo.
Seems like a group of very unsavory, entitled fellows...
