I was in Durham, NC, earlier this week, where my wife received treatment from doctors at Duke Medical Center.

With plenty of time to spare, it occurred to me that I should get a selfie at the Duke Lacrosse house to post on the website. While the 2006 prosecution and April 2007 dropping of all charges pre-dated Legal Insurrection, the false accusations, mob mentality, and faculty perfidy seemed to be a prelude to the campus due process disregard emboldened later by the Obama administration.

My wife was up for it, and we planned to drive there before leaving.

The address was easy to find.

This is what the house looked like at the time of the false allegation that Duke Lacrosse players raped stripper Crystal Magnum (who is in prison until 2026 on an unrelated murder charge):

But alas, it no longer exists. The house was torn down in 2010:

This wasn’t exactly a “bucket list” type thing. But I was disappointed.

I greatly appreciate the many well wishes I receive from readers for my wife’s condition. We were not disappointed by Duke. Cleveland Clinic was a sorely disappointing bust at many levels, but Duke has us keeping hope alive.

That and our new seawall in Rhode Island, which is nearing completion. Building projects are my personal go-to therapy.
