Duke Case: Hitching up the Truth

Wendy McElroy writes the Foxnews "ifeminists" viewpoint. She now hitches up the ifeminists wagon to the truth and sends it out to chop down some cotton pick'n lies planted in Durham's field of injustice by Mike Nifong. She says:

I believe the accused are blatantly innocent and that the prosecuting District Attorney Mike Nifong is acting with willful disregard for both the evidence in the case and the Constitutional rights of the accused. In this case, I believe the legal system is the enemy of justice...and nakedly so...

How naked? Consider one of the suspects, Reade Seligmann. He is scheduled to be tried on three felony charges despite overwhelming evidence of his innocence: exculpatory DNA tests, a corroborated alibi, a string of contradictory statements by his accuser and an irredeemably tainted I.D....

As long as Nifong is the face of government, I find no reason for public confidence.
The truth is sharp steel. The truth well set Seligmann, Finnerty, and Evans free. The truth is picking up speed and allies.

Joan Foster at LieStoppers was worrying:
This [Duke] case is like that. There's 500 acres of lies out there, and there are people who own Really Big Equipment, commercial heavy-duty machinery that could mow that field to dust in hours. But the Big Guys haven't shown up...
Well, Ms. McElroy has a mule and just started cutting her 40 acres. Maybe more mules will get hitched as people rush in to claim their 40 acres before the 60 Minutes combine gets fired up?
