This smells like Mignini IMO
Thanks for posting this. Frank just has a way of putting things into perspective and has facts to back up his writing.
Just a side note, Via Sarah Snyder:
Knox sells memoir rights to Harper Collins for close to $ 4 Million
Amanda Knox has deal with HarperCollins for memoir (AP)

Good for her.
I say congrats Amanda. I can't wait to read her book.
I will also look forward to reading this book
I just reported on the case but don't know enough about this story to say
if she was innocent or guilty. If she is innocent, more power to her.
I do look forward to reading the book..
better her than you-know-who.
hint: ("mother of the year")
:snooty:Nah! I hate to disagree with you, but they're both acquitted murderesses! I can't wait until charges are re-instated against Amanda, there was more than enough evidence to convict her even without the screw-up in the lab! I won't be buying this book!
Sorry, no evidence besides lab screw-up and perjured testimony of a murderer ever existed against AK.
Other thrilling WS threads exist for that debate though!
I had heard the figure at apx $4M on CNN/HLN. Isn't that about the same as Marcia Clark received for her book post-OJ trial so many years ago?
Despite on which side of the fence you sit, one could conclude that not only Defense Lawyers but Prosecutors too can profit beyond their contracted services, and that alleged murderers can do the same (guilty in fact or not).
in any way make up for the travesty of justice that occurred here but I'm sure it may be at least cathartic to get it all out and tell her story. I have never seen someone I firmly believe is innocent be so demonized. I can empathize. I imagine being on my semester abroad a long time ago and getting caught up with some tragedy which turns into a witch hunt against the foreign girl who doesn't meet the cultural norms of the sexually obessed prosecutor. Although I was never good at cartwheels so maybe I was safe...
LOL. Though like everything with that case, what the alleged "cartwheels" actually were will have to wait until Knox tells us. English-language newspapers liked the word "cartwheel" because in English it symbolizes carefree indifference and was yet one more way to demonize her.
OT except for the word cartwheel, which the American media likes too, despite its confusion with the word somersault in the matter of Whitney Houston's poolside behavior in days before her death.
Seems at TJMK they are believing Galati is asserting that Hellmann actually broke Italian law within his rulings. I wonder how quickly the court of Cassation will weigh in on Giovanni Galati's findings?
What she said. :seeya:
I myself didn't see any evidence against her....but to each their own. :cool2:
If you are not willing to debate these points, why list them?
I will debate the entire list with you anytime, in fact I would enjoy it... fire away!
