It's been a dream of mine to visit Italy. Tuscany, where the light is so special it has inspired artists for centuries. The Italian Alps, because they're ALPS, after all. And Perugia, a town whose name came to note with an earthquake, not too long ago, and the trial and jailing of Amanda Knox. Perugia is an ancient town, and a place I think would be fascinating to visit.
But not from jail.
And she's out now. Freed because her conviction was overturned on appeal. Freed because assessment of the DNA evidence, in the cold, hard light of objective analysis, showed she and her boyfriend didn't belong to the evidence. Just that simple. In Italy, as in this country, reasonable doubt will set you free. A lack of tangible evidence of guilt will set you free.
And even though the idiocy of publicity seeker Nancy Grace will publicly wonder "did Amanda Knox get away with murder", she's home, she's free and she's declared innocent.
I have some advice for Nancy Grace (which, of course, she's free to ignore OR accept). Nancy!! Keep your mouth shut ... and wear pasties.
