Dipping into the Fray...

I don't normally follow the reactions to things I write, (though I'm always happy to read e-mail feedback) but I was curious as to how people would react to my Slate piece on Lynne Stewart.

Beyond the expected posts urging us to 'hang all the lawyers' or helpfully reminding us that 'liberals suck', there were a number of more substantive posts, almost all of which took a surprisingly mechanistic and formulaic approach to the law. Most everyone seemed to think that if Lynne violated the SAMS, then she deserved to be convicted of conspiracy. Makes me sad--even as it's good to know.
