Bill Cosby is not innocent. But Bill Cosby is free. And Bill Cosby is “home free” with respect to any new charges. Yes, it’s disgusting. Yes, it violates our innate sense of justice. And, yes, it is devastating for the dozens of victims who have made credible accusations against Cosby.
But frustrating as it is for most of us, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court got it exactly right. Ultimately, our legal system and protection of all of our due process rights reign “supreme.” What is still stuck in my craw is Cosby’s utter lack of remorse and accountability.
Indicted. Both the Trump Organization and its longtime CEO, Allen Weisselberg. You say these are “small potato” charges? Don’t be surprised if and when they become a Giant Spud with a huge dollop of “sour cream.” What was the name of that show-off dolphin? Flipper? And it would not surprise me if a future chapter in this tawdry saga becomes “Stormy.”
“Profiles in Cowardice.” Republicans first rejected the creation of a bi-partisan commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol insurrection. Now they are undermining the work of the newly approved House Select Committee. What’s clear is that they do not want ANY investigation into the biggest domestic assault on our democracy in American history. “It didn’t happen. It was a peaceful protest. Those were just tourists.” Abdication. Cowards. History will not be kind to these dishonest sycophants.
I’ve never given a flying flip about Britney Spears. But I do feel sorry for her.
It’s hotter than July. I’m gonna play some Stevie.
