Yesterday, The Oregonian published this interesting piece in the Sunday opinion section. I have a number of reactions, but I think I’ll let it sit for now. My grandmother taught me the value of manners; one of her cardinal rules is that if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
That’s not a rule that we honor in the courtroom where we will have a few things to say. The short version is that I’ll be interested to hear Mr. Williams’ answers to a few questions after he is placed under oath. But now is not the time, and this is not the place.
For those following this case, I’m simply noting yesterday’s publication so that you’re aware that it hasn’t escaped our attention. There will be a time and a place for testing some of the more wild assertions in the linked piece.
