Oh, Orenthal James, what can I say? I find it truly fascinating that we can convict you of crimes against property when we could not convict you of a crime against a woman.

I know, you are a black man, and that fact cannot be discounted in our racist culture--but it still amazes me that in general crimes against women count for so much less than theft of property. Maybe its just that we are so obsessed with our stuff that we react so powerfully against theft--but come on! You killed your ex-wife and a man who happened to be there, too. Is this a kind of delayed justice? I don't know.
