Not so much a train wreck this week as a car wreck. Literally: The first segment, on the awful Nikki Catsouras case, illustrates Bill’s recurring point about the Internet’s capacity for excess — something which no one, least of all MK, disputes, just as O’R himself doesn’t dispute that the Web is an extremely efficient information network. The Catsouras case brings those two facets together, which is why it’s a bit more interesting than the fare we’re accustomed to in these segments. Like the, um, naked news and Olsen twins bits that follow it. A little more emphasis in these weekly stints on how serious malefactors leverage the virtues of the Web would go a long way.

Exit question: Is there any adult male in America who doesn’t know how pay-access porn sites work? (Except me, of course.) Why, it’s like claiming you don’t know what “MILF” stands for.
