The prosecution wrapped up in the murder trial of Tyrone Greene yesterday with the presentation of a statement Greene gave to a Chester County detective in which he allegedly admitted participating in the robbery that led to the 1993 killing of Coatesville Laundermat manager Donald Johnson. Detective David Grandizio testified that Greene made the statement after being arrested in Philadelphia on Dec. 28, 1993, 10 days after the botched robbery attempt. The prosecution maintains that Greene stood watch at the front of the coin laundry on Dec. 18, 1993, while his accomplice, Darrick Hall, stuck a gun to Johnson's head and killed him. Hall, who gave detectives a statement implicating Greene in the robbery, was convicted of first-degree murder in 1994 and sentenced to death.

Five words you will never hear from me again in life: I agree with James Dobson. Dobson is the founder of Focus on the Family, a conservative activist group, and ordinarily, I couldn't see eye to eye with him on the day of the week. But I agree with him about Mary Cheney. He wrote about the vice president's pregnant, lesbian daughter in a Time magazine essay in December. Here's part of what he said: "With all due respect to Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe, the majority of more than 30 years of social-science evidence indicates that children do best on every measure of well-being when raised by their married mother and father.

In the 1870s, when Boss Tweed's Tammany Hall controlled New York City, and in the 1950s and 1960s, when Chicago's Democratic machine was especially rampant, there was a phenomenon that can be called immunity through profusion: Fresh scandals arrived with metronomic regularity, so there was no time to concentrate on any of them. The public, bewildered by blitzkriegs of bad behavior, was enervated. What Winston Churchill said about an adversary - "He spoke without a note and almost without a point" - can be said of Donald Trump, but this might be unfair to him.
