Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

    Good. That he wasn’t convicted of the more serious charges is something I hope is addressed in his future trial. That MFer needs to burn on every level. Of justice of course. 🙂Report
