Duke Case: Bowl of Bitterness & Hate

Hal Crwother serves a big bowl of bitterness & hateHal Crowther is a bitter infected wart of an old man with a brain injury. He serves up a steaming bowl of good old southern bitterness and hate on the front page of The Independent Weekly (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill).

He goes off on a rant about young punk cheat'n kids and especially Duke jocks who are "Cynical, arrogant, callous, dismissive--you could almost say openly hostile."

He takes shots at rich white boys, Howard Stern, defense lawyers, Ann Coulter, Jerry Springer, and he even gets in a few licks at Coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Hell, these young punks today are even cruel to animals.

Hal Crowther needs a refresher course in how to compensate for resentful dementia at a brain injury rehab unit.

Crowther has no problems at all with Mike Nifong. He uses his name just once, as a picture caption. Mike Nifong is his kind of guy. In fact, this long-winded big bowl of bitterness and resentment against Duke sounds like Mike Nifong could have personally written it. Needed to check to make sure "Hal Crowther" wasn't some sort of coded anagram for "Mike Nifong."

We'll allow just one small spoonful of Mr. Crowther's spew here:

"What do we make of his unmistakable impulse to worry more about injustice to the white boys than to the woman who says they raped her? To imply that rich white athletes are unsafe in the North Carolina legal system is like saying the Pope can't get a fair trial in Vatican City."
There is injustice and then there is lying, following the evidence and commonsense tells you which is which. As Martin Luther King said: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Words to keep in mind or at least write down if you're not fully functional.

Crowther's brain injury rehab unit should include Chris Kromm, who says:
it seems to be Crowther's attempt at an honest reckoning of the situation
Honest reckoning? That is just plain funny. Never heard of Mr. Kromm's Institute for Southern Studies in Durham. But, they must have something to do with the culinary arts.
