Noise proves nothing; often a hen that has merely laid an egg cackles as she has laid an asteroid
Speaking of Greta's bunch, I've already addressed my contempt for Gloria Allred in another piece on this blog, but the rest of them are utterly worthless as far as a reasonable, rational explanation of the legal issues involved to us laymen. The one attorney in the media who does indeed provide such explanations, very cogent ones indeed is none other than Ron Kuby. Say what? Kunstler's protege? The guy who's so far left he thinks Khruschev was a reactionary? Listening to him on the radio though, it's like a switch flips when an explanation of a legal concept or issue comes up in the conversation. He suddenly switches gear to an almost pedagogic approach toward explaining the concepts to the profanum vulgus, using everyday terminology to clarify and explain concepts. As much as I loathe the guy's political position, if he wrote a book on law for the layman, I'd buy it in an instant.
As for Mr. Jackson, innocent until proven guilty. But the concept of "where there's smoke there's fire" is going to irrevocably impact his non-passive income stream.
