Not a Cheery Post
But perhaps worth blogging for. Had you seen this article about the Duke Lacrosse team? I hadn't. Some of the best coverage so far is at Alas, a blog. You'd think that, with 46 suspects, there'd have been a bit more coverage. Not that race or class might have anything to do with it. Or the fact that the victim was a stripper.
Update: Ralph Luker has posted more at Cliopatria. Ralph, I'd forgotten about your Duke connection. And while I do agree that people are innocent until proven guilty, I have to say that I consider every person at that party who did nothing to stop the alleged assault, each person who has not come forward to either turn in a temmate or help clear a teammate, to be guilty. Obviously not of rape -- the victim claims that only three people actually raped her -- but the silence of the team makes its members complicit. Also, from what I can tell, this all happened on March 13 ... it didn't hit the nationals till almost two weeks later, as far as I can tell. I could be wrong -- after all, I didn't listen to the news as much while on break.
