I would like to remind us older folk and tell the younger folk [View all]

that Marcia Clark and Chris Darden, by all accounts including that of Mr Darden, developed a sexual relationship during their prosecution of O.J. Simpson for a double homicide.

This can easily occur when two people are in close proximity for lengths of time. I personally know all about that process. Many times over, I might add.

So of course, the issue here for the pretend-to-be-less-than-sanctimonious is that untruths may have been stated as to when sexual intercourse occurred. Penetration, of any type, is the line we as a society utilize to define the act of sexual Congress, as it were. It becomes a whole different story when an individual is penetrated in any of his or her orifices.

In fact, the Defense does not care one whit about the potential dissembling, it wants the public to envision these two individuals, naked, sweating, thrusting, etc. I guarantee you that if this couple were Caucasian, this would not be the issue, or if it were, it would have been presented in a more arcane fashion.

Oh…are you upset that she may have hired him because he may or may not have been a sex partner? Look at any administration in any city, state, town, or hamlet and when you are told the inside story of how so and so was hired, it’s the same old same old.

I’m really tired of faux outrage concerning sex and sexuality. The Reagan crowd began using it wholesale with Falwell and his ilk in the late 1970’s and it has exploded into a massive Pearl-clutching by the hypocrites who are banging each other out of wedlock, asking casual acquaintances to join in threesomes, purchasing sex-products delivered always in plain brown boxes. The porn addiction among these individuals is extreme and all the while they act as though this is why the country is going to Hell in a hand basket.

I shall end this tirade with a direct quote from, believe it or not, my mother, who once casually remarked in her 80’s that “…what these assholes need is a real orgasm.” Truer words never spoken.
