Free Cyril - Cyril Freed
I wonder how many folks online realize that Cyril was once county commissioner and top Dem in the city? Or that fighting between Wecht and Caligiuri factions within the party makes any and all current feuding seem pretty trivial. Not only that, but if Arlen is Mr. Single Bullet Theory, Cyril is Mr. Anti-Single-Bullet theory. From the JFK assassination to OJ Simpson.... the latter half of the 20th century could be described as the 6 degrees of Cyril Wecht. I think my Wecht number is 2.
It also reminds us of the other little mystery in the local legal universe. It's just a bit odd that there has not been a new US Attorney appointed by the Obama administration. Just presuming that the reason there hasn't been normal turnover following the presidential election is because they don't have someone to appoint.. or are for other reasons not choosing not to appoint someone... the question becomes why?
