Of lazy Sunday, two Kates and a protest

To open with, dear readers, for the first time in a long while, I simply couldn’t be a***ed blogging this Sunday.   Something will go up when I can get around to it.

Seaside Sourpuss has a swearpost in draft but we’ll need to discuss the gratuitous use of the “f” word in NO posts before that – this blog has some readers who are not really expecting a DK type assault on the senses – in fact, when DK guestposted here, he toned it down a bit.

News?   Apart from the Kate mammary gland business, there’s Hillsborough, which is a biggy and then there is a comparatively minor one in Katie Couric interviewing Raffaele Sollecito, the convicted murderer of Meredith Kercher, on Tuesday.   He is still a convicted murderer on temporary release pending the decision of the Supreme Court on the case.

Interesting that many at TJMK [a non-political site] think good of Katie Couric.   I don’t – she’s a left-liberal and her sympathy will be with the murderers.   Sure she’ll ask curly questions but she’ll let him off with the Knox camp narrative which has beguiled the Americans and I hold out no hope that she’ll grill him mercilessly, which she should do.

It seems many others feel the same way and various bloggers are planning to protest:

Anyone in the NYC area who is interested in protesting Raffaele Sollecito next Tuesday, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm please join me. I will be standing outside the studio (near Lincoln Center) passing out flyers. 

Let me know, I welcome the support. Let’s do it for Meredith and her family! I understand that some of you are on different continents or otherwise too far away geographically.

Hope she gets a few there but what effect it will have on Couric who has already packaged the interview, is another thing.

    I believe his father is a lawyer so I am sure a carefully drafted agreement about what she could and couldn’t ask as part of her interview would have been long negotiated.

    He needed Jon Snow to interview him.

    I certainly hope that Sollecito isn’t being paid for the interview.
