I have got to wonder what horse you have in this particular
race. Do what? You are the one focused on Hopkins and what you
think is the destruction of his _honor_. So, the man made an
error; he was manipulated by his desire to help a person. I
can't understand why you feel that Rainey is _attacking_
Hopkins. You need to go back and sit quietly while watching the
film clip. I saw no attack on Hopkins. As a matter of fact,
Hopkins was described as wondering himself about the validity of
the case. Time to take a deep breath and use a little critical
thinking, don't you think.

I am still wondering what your friend Marie has to do with
anything. Did you want to brag about knowing her? Fine, but why
connect her to Hopkins. The discussion is about Linda - which
you now state you do not know. End of discussion.
