Prosecution Soon Rests

I prefer to concentrate on local rather than national politics. However, I might eventually write on grand jury-shopping D.A. Ronnie Earle, and his incredible shrinking case against Rep. DeLay, because I think “Witless for the Persecution” would be a great title.

Of course that’s a reference to Agatha Christie’s short story and stage play “Witness for the Prosecution,” a great production of which is currently being staged by the Heights Players in Brooklyn ( The acting is first-rate, and it looks fantastic—give props to the props. Unfortunately, it ends its run today, so act quick if you want to catch it. I suspect time is running out for Earle as well.
