Adamantine bridles that restrain the frivolous insolence of mortals

Durham in Wonderland watches Mike Nifong sentenced to a day in jail for criminal contempt as his life and career continue to fall apart.

Nemesis (in Greek, Νέμεσις), also called Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia ("the goddess of Rhamnous"), at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, in the Greek mythology was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris, vengeful fate personified as a remorseless goddess. The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νείμειν, meaning "to give what is due". The Romans equated one aspect of Greek Nemesis, which might be interpreted as "indignation at unmerited advantage", as Invidia.

What else can one say? Nothing follows.

Just as it's become a blog-sport to try to catch newspapers and other media outlets in biases, tilts, photoshops, and other lies and misdemeanors, I'm seeing mention made here and there now of possible prosecutorial misconduct and am wondering if "whack the prosector" might become the next big internet game.

I can't say that I'll be having a whole lot of sympathy for them, if it does.

Both sports require targets who are actually doing wrong to go after.

No, no sympathy at all.

If the blogosphere becomes an effective watchdog (a role the MS is supposed to be doing), I'd call that a plus.
