When the D in DA stands for "Duh"

Am I the only one who's getting tired of David Soares and his press monkey, Richard Arthur?

For the past few weeks, Soares and staff haven't been able to walk past an open microphone without saying something ridiculous. First was his "The eyes of the world are watching this drama unfold" statement about the Geisel case, and then on Wednesday coming out against Joan Porco and stating he's got the goods on her son. As local attorney Steve Coffey said yesterday on WGY, "It's time to put up or shut up".

Here's an idea: if Christopher Porco is charged, maybe Soares should try the case himself. What the heck, there's a first time for everything. My advice is start watching Law & Order ---they show back to back episodes weekday afternoons at 3pm on TNT. Say what you will about Patricia DeAngelis, but at least she has experience in a courtroom where there's something serious going on.

On the brighter side, Mr. Arthur has stopped sending out emails with insultingly cutesy subject lines.
