On the local Fox news, I just watched a segment on the death of Daniel Kerrigan, father of Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan. The 70-year-old Mr. Kerrigan was reportedly having an argument with his son Mark that took a physical turn—police found the elder Kerrigan unconscious, and he died shortly thereafter. Mark Kerrigan has been charged with assault and has pleaded not guilty. Worse charges may ensue depending on the autopsy. Luckily for Mark, lingering questions of his guilt were put to rest by a family spokesman who told the media, "Everyone has a closet. And anyone who says he doesn't is living in denial."

I only wish I caught the spokesman's name. Maybe it was Barry Zuckerkorn.
