PLEASE CHECK YOUR RACE AT THE DOOR

posted October 17, 2011

Rumor has it that S.A. Peter Florrick's office has a new visitor � a guest from the United States' Attorney's office � the granddaughter of Reverend Roy Stonehouse � one of the leaders from the Selma to Montgomery marches of �65

And why the unexpected visit? It appears that outgoing S.A. Glenn Childs left a pretty colorless package for his incoming rival: a series of sweeter plea deals for those of the Caucasian persuasion. Captain Malfeasance has his work cut out for him as the Feds look into this suspicious pattern that resembles more of a manila folder than a chess board. With one hand on a broom to clean up his predecessor's messes and his eyes looking over his shoulder at an A.U.S.A. who's got a legacy to live up to, S.A. Florrick is finding his new term is less black and white than he had hoped� even though Cook County jails have been more black than white for a while now.
