The Liar's Game

Read a great book review this afternoon, now that I'm home & all cleaned up from camping since Thursday. It's about the Duke University Lacrosse rape case. I never felt the accused were guilty. In fact, I recall thinking they were getting railroaded and short while back blogged about Nifong being forced into resigning and being disbarred. I plan to read the book too.

I'm deeply revolted at finding out that Duke didn't support it's students and that the faculty excoriated the accused maybe even worse then the legal system. I think the faculty members who participated should all do an examination of conscience, reassess their characters downward and then just get real. They lied about their own students in a way that really smacks of world class betrayal. Anyway....

The title of the review is:
