When saying sorry is not enough
The New York Times and the The Virginian-Pilot have coverage of the dog-loving amici brief urging a stiff sentence filed yesterday in the Vick case (details here). Part of the local coverage has this interesting account of how and why the brief was put together:
Flora Edwards, a New York attorney who is also helping the dog advocates, said the organizations behind the motion coordinated largely through the Internet. Their push for action grew after many of the members felt Vick wasn’t genuinely contrite in his public apology after his guilty plea, Edwards said.

" Most people cannot do better than chance in determining whether someone is lying. Very few subjects, in studies testing ability to detect detection, have achieved higher than a 60% accuracy rate, when 50% accuracy would represent the level of mere chance."
