    I feel terrible for letting myself get sucked in, even a little, ten years ago.

    True, it's awful, but it's something that needs to be taken very seriously. A calm and dispassionate retelling of the story of the crime and the so-called investigations would be enough to make one sick. Says terrible things about all levels of law enforcement agencies and the media. So much "incompetence" that it's hard to believe it could be incompetence alone. Very grim.

    When I heard about this, I just heard the headline -- no details. My first reaction was scepticism, but I saw in the stories that there's some serious DNA evidence, so if the DNA stuff isn't bogus or BS, then my guess is, as others have said, it's 'cuz he was arrested yesterday. (Oh, also, the Benet's reported this guy as a suspect shortly after the murder.)

    But if the guy had been some obvious patsy, then I would be as suspicious of the arrest as the diarist is. Still, I'm not sure what was supposed to be pushed out of the news.
