Note to readers: This essay originally ran on January 17, 2017, but in light of new context in cascading sex scandals there may be reason to take another look at the whole story. Also, I will add a warning about obscene photos below.

Behold the Washington Post Style section of January 3, 2017.

All but the trimmings of Page One and Two belong to a woman named Amanda Kleinman, who, we are told, is the leading victim of the headline's "Troll Patrol" -- online harassment resulting from that "viral fake news conspiracy theory" known as "Pizzagate."

On November 14, 2017, a red-hot Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) scorched Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a series of questions arising from this Justice Department's failure to restore the lost principle of one law for all citizens.
