McCann's Twisted 'Logic'

A number of readers emailed in response to my post on columnist John McCann's insidious comment about the Duke case ("the lacrosse boys brought it on themselves, though -- even if the accuser's lying") to point out that this twisted logic could be applied equally to the accuser.

Of course, McCann would have been immediately relieved of his column-writing duties had he suggested the accuser in the Duke case "brought it on herself" by "not keeping her nose clean," yet apparently there's no problem with making that argument about the lacrosse players.
