My dad was there, with camera in hand, but Nifong predictably shut the media out.

The gaggle of press-types later caught him in the courthouse, but he wouldn't comment on the Duke lacrosse case. I think my dad will have video soon.

Update: Heh. "Only in Durham is the swearing-in of a public official not open to the public."

"Only in Durham" is a phrase we Durhamites use frequently. KC is slowly becoming one of us.
