    I was watching one of the MSNBC hosts interview Darian Johnson, next to his lawyer. He's telling his story and answering the host's questions, in a calm, steady, careful tone, and I'm watching and trying to decide how credible this person seems.

    Then my mother calls and wants to speak to my toddler son on the speaker phone. After a minute, I hear her say that she can't hear because of the TV in the background, so I mute it.

    And then I'm watching Darian Johnson talk, with the sound off, and I suddenly I realize that he's visibly fighting not to burst into tears, or start screaming and ranting. I couldn't see it when the sound was on, but without that to distract me, I could read his face and his body language. This is was no slick liar spinning a yarn. I believe every word he says.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
