“In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally-important groups — the police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.”

If you, like me, can recite that entire preamble from memory, then you’ll enjoy Molly Haskell’s NYT article, “A ‘Law and Order’ Addict Tells All.” (You’ll probably want to hit that link soon, since it’s from last Sunday, and thus, will fall into the pay archive soon.)


The Times archive is free; you just need to pay to access articles retrieved using their search engine. Direct links to articles still work, past the two-week free search horizon. For example: When the Glitter of Stock Options Turns to Dust, from 22 Aug 1999.
