A tale of two southern ladies.  First, Mary Katherine Ham, links to this great Op-Ed by Betsy Newmark, “Racist stereotypes shaped Duke rape case,”   Mary Katherine then proceeds to smack Durham with a dead flounder.

She’s right, of course. Finnerty and Seligmann will only be truly forgiven in Durham if they hop into the white guilt drum circle for aggressive self-flagellation with the rest of the city. They’ll be asked not to sue anyone and to, instead, join in the healing process, which consists of talking ad nauseum about the “larger truths” their non-crime revealed– none of which, by the way, will have anything to do with the fact that Durham is a little race-obsessed P.C. haven where the white and privileged and innocent were sold out instantly just for the community feelgood effect.

I’ll bet that the three falsely accused, Dave Evans, Reade Seligmann, and Collin Finnerty, get their lives back in some semlance of order long before Durham examines her soul.  Mike Nifong can, and should be, disbarred.   Sadly is is no state bar association for communities.   Maybe there should be?
