Lots of talk in the blogosphere about this Columbia professor. For example, U of Wisconsin law professor Ann Althouse has strong views on this one.
My thoughts are two, and different than the ones focused on elsewhere:
1. Whatever you think about whether this should be legal or not, this persecution seems to me a complete waste of taxpayer dollars. Essentially, taxpayers are subsidizing the political campaign of some local lawyer by paying for this high publicity, low usefulness persecution.
2. Why weren't both parties arrested? They are both adults.
Who was my favorite student this term?
