Everybody Knows

Remember how everybody just knew that the mother and husband of Chicago judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow had been murdered by white supremacists? If you’ve been following the case in the media over the last week, you likely had no doubt where the guilt lay.

White supremacists are nasty dudes and make great villains. Too bad the actual culprit is just some guy whose malpractice suit was thrown out by the judge. The truth is so boring sometimes.

Not that I’m drawing any parallels to the Hariri assassination or the Yushchenko poisoning, you understand…
