St. Nona

Part of my mission in life is to look at things from the unpleasant perspective that most folks just hate. Today's story in the Russellville Courier on Nona Dirksmeyer requires commentary.

She was, doubtless, a wonderful young woman who will be deeply missed by her friends. One must always, however, be sensitive to those who would "taint" the prospective jurors by creating a sense of rage over the crime.

In view of the fact that police say they have a specific suspect, and that many of us have surmised who that might be, is it right to get folks stoked up over it? The suspect deserves a fair trial.
