  1. Back here in Minnesota, we have a case of sexual assault by members of the U of MN Gopher football team (http://www.startribune.com/gophers/story/1305344.html ). The have been dismissed. The indictments came after DNA evidence was processed and a video recording came to light showing the assault's finale.
    However,the intellectual elite at the U of MN, who excoriated the Duke lacrosse team are once again strangely quiet. No calls about closing the football program down and firing the new coach. No full page ads in Prairie Pravda (Minneapolis Star Tribune) excoriating and decrying this type or any type of sexual violence by sporting elites.
    Oh, and by the way, all the accused in this case are black.
    Equal justice under the law? Derision where derision is deserved? Not where the intellectual illuminati are concerned.
