Back to the OJ Future

The OJ Simpson Trial may have made more media celebrities than any single event our history and one of those was coroner Cyril Wecht. Wecht is now before the law himself with an 84-count indictment, which, according to CNN, “includes mail fraud, wire fraud, theft of honest services and theft from the Allegheny County coroner’s office, which Wecht heads. ” [What are “honest services”?-ed. Beats me.] Rising to Wecht’s defense is another (sorta) celeb – former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh who, bloggers of all people will recall, did an okay job of obfuscating the perfidy of one Dan Rather. How do you say “Six Degrees of Separation”?
