    This guy will never win this case. The Defense has got the DA buy the balls. If it goes to trial, this will be all about the right jury, instead of the evidence though. So I guess there is some hope for the DA. He better hope his litigation skills are up to par.

    The DA was in my college class (UNC-Chapel Hill, 1971;
    I did not know him).

    From what I have read in the papers the state has a
    lousy case.

    It would be nice if all this has a civilizing effect on the
    dork jocks of the country, but that ain't gonna happen.

    I haven't really been following this case. But I did see Jesse Jackson was in on it, someone tell me what the hell he has to do with any of this?

    The alleged rape victim was black. Also, he hasn't been getting much press lately, so between this and Barry Bonds, he ought to get his fix.

    Links. She is conservative, but with that said, never one to mince words regarding race and the trials and tribulations:

    I saw the 60 mins. program last night on this, if true the DA should go to jail.

    I saw it too. The phrase "Hangins too good for that varmint" comes to mind. Honestly, I don;t know how he sleeps at night.
