I must make a damning confession. I claim to care about criminal justice, and yet I’ve been ignoring the Drew Peterson trial.

I haven’t been reading the frequent updates or perusing the live tweets from the reporters at the Will County courthouse.

I did read this morning’s Sun-Times story just to see what I’ve been missing. The “threat of a blockbuster mistrial” was averted yesterday. This denies us the chance of seeing a movie one day about the blockbuster Peterson mistrial.
