  • I have to agree that Mr. Bright’s conduct has been exempliary. I do find it funny that the Huffington Post mentions the Bush Administration’s handling of Dr. Hatfill in the anthrax case, while totally forgetting the Clinton Administration’s handling of Richard Jewell in the Atlanta Olympic Bombing case.
