Flashback to last week. Framingham police responded to a 911 call and found Carla Souza and her 11-year-old son beaten to death in their apartment. Despite the fact that Souza's husband promptly confessed, a Boston Globe writer stumbled over her prose trying to afford him a presumption of innocence.
Contrast that with this week's lead sentence from a New York Times story about the alleged Marine massacre in Iraq.
Hiba Abdullah survived the killings by American troops in Haditha last Nov. 19, but said seven others at her father-in-law's home did not.Res ipsa loquitur.
