In the Shadows, about how Ed Kramer has successfully perverted the course of justice to evade charges of child molestation for more than a decade. Bonus fun fact: DragonCon is a for-profit enterprise.

All I can hope is that the highly paid lawyers dropping him is a sign that Kramer's gotten too used to fooling the system to even pretend to keep his story straight in a legally defensible way. At the very least, that the court should have demonstrable and continuing danger to counter any further requested modifications.

It was the first time I'd heard of the dividends thing, though: going to DragonCon directly results in that sociopath having more money to spend on lawyers. Ew.

That DragonCon story is repulsive. Still, I think I'm almost as horrified at the measures the guy has to take to get treatment for his medical conditions (oatmeal baths are an actual and documented treatment for psoriasis, not, as the article hints, a made-up luxury) and what that means for all the people in prison who don't have DragonCon funding their legal appeals. And yes, he's obviously using his conditions as stalling tactics, but at the same time, if he had access to proper medical treatment he wouldn't be able to use them that way.
