Thanks for all you've done to keep us updated on this important story.

I'm still waiting for a REAL apology, not just from Nifong, but also the Gang of 88 and the lynch mob that attempted to deny justice to the three former Duke students.

I wonder how much money the Gang of 88 succesfully squeezed out of Duke's Administrator's to continue teaching their lynch mob mentality?

Today was a great day. Thank you for keeping us up-to-date. I wish Nifong had seen the light a lot earlier and it did not have to come this. Unfortunately, he was the bull in the china cabinet acting very bullish. So, it had to end this way. Nobody wins, everybody loses.

There are many lessons to be learned here. I hope Brodhead and the Group of 88 at Duke are listening and observing carefully.

A local TV station showed two email messages from the viwers. The first one questions the 'moral' standard of the LAX team for their hiring the dancer; the second one is on Nifong.

Re-read the article from the Durham News

'He is here to stay, so get used to it'.

Lane Williamson rocks! I am very impresssed with the way he handled the Nifong hearings. I give him a perfect score in every aspect of those hearings. Overall, he was magnificent and his closong remarks were exceptional.

When will those of you crowing about this news start the conversation about what the players owe Duke and Durham for the consequences of the bad judgment they used when they threw their party last March, furnished alcohol to underage team members, drank to excess, hired strippers, and yelled racist epithets on the public streets of Durham? None of this, as I recall, was Nifong's doing? And yet their bad decisions and illegal and just plain boorish behavior had serious consequences for the university they claim to (have) loved, the team they belonged to, and the community they resided in.

Are we to expect no apologies from them for any of this? Are they to be held accountable for nothing?

Too bad someone had to write that the three players owe an apology. The players were doing what just about all kids in their 20s do in college. The DA was twice their age as well as the administration.

It looks like you are lost. You must be looking for the "Justice for two sisters" site where they just awarded sainthood to the two sisters - Crystal and Kim. Your posts there will be most welcome.
