Perspective on the Duke Case

I have refrained from commenting on the alleged rapes by lacrosse players at Duke. I have no direct knowledge of the situation, and the evidence released or leaked to the media does not make the situation any more clear to me.

You might not expect to gain perspective on this case from a Greensboro-based alt-weekly, but YES!Weekly editor Brian Clarey has used his recent columns to give some useful background on some of the people involved in this story. Who could have guessed that growing up on Long Island and knowing a few strippers would be so useful in a single story?

I am still not taking sides in this case, but I think Clarey's viewpoint is helpful in understanding this case.
