Duke Lacrosse DA Not Leaving Anytime Soon

You know how much we just love to write about the Duke lacrosse case. Today's a big day in the case, though; district attorney Mike Nifong, accused by many of using the case for political gain, won the Democratic primary yesterday by a slim margin. So far there is no Republican challenger, so he's likely to serve a four-year term.

We've grown so tired of this case; no one knows anything about what happened that night, so everyone just relies on the same news reports that everyone is simultanously decrying. But it will be interesting and instructive to see if the case continues with the same fervor now that the election issue is behind us. We hope so. We really hope so.

We send you back to your regularly scheduled fun programming now.
