Poor Chandra Levy was killed by either Gary Condit or a random mugger. That's it. That's what the freaking twelve-part series that started today in the Washington Post is going to tell you.
You can read Chapter 1 here.
Chandra Levy was probably a very nice person, and she certainly didn't deserve to be killed. But she died seven years ago, and in that time our nation has seen its civil liberties eroded, its moral authority across the world shattered, and its sense of optimism and hope for the future utterly destroyed -- hopefully not forever.
Any single aspect of the path that got us here deserves a twelve-part series in one of this nation's few papers of record more than the brutal murder of this poor, innocent woman who was taken too soon. For God's sake, Washington Post, at long last -- have you no self respect?
So, this blog was created as one person's desperate and impossible attempt to forestall the inevitable waste of time, newspaper space and ink that is this twelve part series. How? By providing a spoiler that ruins the whole thing, and then maybe, God willing, makes the Post rethink its decision. Don't read on if you don't want to find out how the story ends.
!!! SPOILER ALERT !!!
!!! DON'T READ ANY MORE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE HOW THIS TWELVE PART SERIES ENDS !!!

Poor Chandra Levy was brutally murdered by either Gary Condit or a random mugger. We really just don't know.
That is all.
