is taking the parable of the dishonest steward too far.
Lawyers for a death row inmate, including former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr, sent fake letters from jurors asking California’s governor to spare the man’s life, prosecutors said Friday.
Granting that Jesus might cut some slack for a guy who's evidently opposed to carrying out the death penalty, Starr's the Dean of a Law School. Or at least, Pepperdine calls itself a school.
To grasp the full irony, consider that Starr is the man who put together the prosecution of our last lawfully elected president for fibbing in a civil suit about heavy petting out of wedlock. Starr made a big show of having lily white hands, of being a super-Christian, a veritable Joe Friday of the disciples. Now he's is discovered to be forging letters to enable a man who a jury has duly sentenced to death to escape the law.
Exactly what are students supposed to think?
