[Government Run Amock]

[-----]

    Blessed are the Piecemakers?

    Sure, using profanity as part of one's Christian commitment is a tad bizarre, but why is District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, who didn't sufficiently pursue the child-rape scandal in the local Catholic Church and who is known for not pursuing many public corruption cases, going after little old ladies who want to live free and not have government inspectors poking around their kitchen? The Times' Dana Parsons had it right: "Nobody asked me, but if I were the county, I might be inclined to quietly walk away from this one. I just wonder whether illegally baking muffins is worth stepping into this potential land mine ... ." Shame on the DA.
