INNOCENT: What's wrong with Durham?

"... these three individuals [David Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann,] are innocent of these charges."

North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, Apr. 11, 2007

Right Angles blogger Jon Ham has a great post up for all of you who've been asking: "What's wrong with Durham?"

Jon knows whereof he speaks. He was an editor at the Durham Herald Sun back when it was a well-respected newspaper. He's now one of the leaders of The John Locke Foundation, a North Carolina-based policy institute.

I can also confirm two rumors about Jon.

Yes, he's the father of columnist and pundit Mary Katherine Ham.

And yes, he does live in Durham's Trinity Park.

But as you'd guess, Jon didn't rally with the pot-bangers and some Duke faculty, students and "community activists" who waved the "CASTRATE" and "GIVE THEM EQUAL MEASURE" banners as they cheered on the frame-up.

Jon's post is here.

It's nice to read a column written by a pro. Thanks, John, for bringing Jon's words to your post.
