The Duke Non-rapes

A few days ago, the NY Times -- this is how I start half my blog posts, by the way -- ran a long, long, long story about the Duke Lacrosse Witch hunt, er, I mean, alleged rape case. Recap: The NY Times accused three (white, rich) kids on the Duke lacrosse team of raping a (black, presumably poor) stripper they hired. It's now become apparent that the case is complete bullshit -- the stripper made the whole thing up. So what does the NY Times do? Defend the prosecutor's decision to pursue these three innocent men because there was at least a modicum of evidence supporting the charges.
