OK, the story that was here is gone. Having heard from the girl in the photo, who made it clear that I misread her “SlutWalk DC” protest sign, I decided that a mere correction was insufficient.

Her sign said she “didn’t want to press charges,” and my concern was that the perpetrator (the 24-year-old who raped a drunk 14-year-old girl) had not been prosecuted for the crime.

The girl says that, while she had initially been unwilling to press charges, she changed her mind and the guy was prosecuted. So my concern was mistaken and, because of the inflammatory nature of my remarks — imagine that, me making inflammatory remarks! — it seemed to me that a mere correction was not enough.

Apologies for the error. — RSM
