Quoting the great American Fascist parable of our day:
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten will step down from his post at the U.S. Attorney's Office, sources tell the WDSU I-Team.
Commissioner James Gordon: The Joker won. All of Harvey's prosecutions, everything he fought for...undone. Whatever chance you gave us of fixing our city dies with Harvey's reputation. We bet it all on him. The Joker took the best of us and tore him down. People will lose hope.
Batman: They won't. They must never know what he did.
In the fascist parable, the so-called "best of us" has just murdered five people. But the heroes decide it's best to build up and celebrate his phony reputation instead. Expect plenty of that from the heroes in the NOLA commentariat in the coming days.
Moesley's latest column on this business begins with a helpful thought.
