Fine, if you're going to cast a ballot in the race for Brooklyn District Attorney, the New York Times supposes you should vote for Kenneth Thompson. But whatever. "Mr. Thompson, a former federal prosecutor with his own law firm, is not an ideal successor. He lacks significant managerial experience, and we were not reassured by his publicity-oriented approach to representing Nafissatou Diallo ... Nonetheless, Mr. Thompson is smart and has shown passion for combating crime and injustice. He pledges to bring in experienced advisers to review office operations."
