Note on the Sypher trial
Reading this blog the past few days, one could be forgiven for thinking that we're oblivious to the fact that one of the most locally hyped trials in years is currently underway. In fact, like all Cards fans, we're paying very close attention; just now I was hitting the refresh button on my browser, waiting for news updates on Rick Pitino's testimony. But yes, we haven't said much about it, I think in part because like everyone else, we're just trying to make sense out of all the details rapidly being released each day. Or maybe legal play-by-play is even more out of our league than its sporting equivalent. (My entire understanding of legal jurisprudence is shaped from John Grisham novels/movies. For my money, all the defense/prosecution need do to win the case is make the jury close their eyes at the end of the trial and tell them a sad story and then end it by saying "now imagine she's white"). Thoughts on the outcome might be due when the trial is ended, but for now I suspect we'll simply keep watching and reading and waiting. If you are looking for more info/analysis, the CJ has an entire web page committed to the trial.
