I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I can’t stand those people. However, this recent article has me absolutely fuming at the general media. I followed this story with utter interest as did many other Americans. I know very few moderately informed people that do not know of the “Jena” or “Jena 6” situation. And why shouldn’t we follow the story with righteous passion? I can’t remember if a racial story has ever struck so many chords in my lifetime (besides that little event out in LA), and I fell for it hook, line and sinker.

More like stinker.

While the author of this entry notes that eventually their town will have the peace that it deserves, irreparable damage is done with such a mishandling of the facts. They are owed a big apology.
