...are, for the most part, people to be trusted. I've always felt this, and always felt that all the people have a natural and fair interest in adjudication. (Of which, btw, I think the Jerry Springer show is an interesting phenom, not least impelled by a prurient interest on the part of men and people of color in the idea that white girls can fight.)

The comments on the latest DSK rape story -- release by the hospital of the vic's timely physical examination, which includes vaginal bruising and other evidence consistent with rape -- are enough to restore your faith in humankind. Or many of us, anyway.

Nobody makes the point that Vance was all over this case probably as a result of what I'm dubbing the Diallo effect, the terrible injustices faced by Africans in New York City.

Which, if this case does not go to trial, will have persisted.
