The Statute of Limitations is directly across the street from the Church
of Perpetually Lowered Expectations in downtown Newark, N.J.. I visited
both places last year when I took the Society of Apathists' tour of
mediocre and/or unfullfilling national historic spots.
The tour is not recommended. The Statute is incomplete above its head,
and the Church has a basement but it lacks a 1st floor (in fact, no it
has floor at all). I'm taking the tour again next year (or whatever, I
guess, maybe, I just don't know).
To drag this thread kicking and screaming back to its subject header:
There are recent alleged actions that occured at the Burke that fall
within the time limit of the Statute of Limitations, so criminal
litigation still remains a possibility. These most recent allegations
were reported in earlier issues of the _Seattle Weekly_ magazine.
And to clarify:
The current investigation is primarily a non-criminal, internal/external
investigation, and that is what we are reading about in the various
_Seattle Weekly_ articles. OTOH, a *criminal* investigation (if there
even is one taking place, and that is a big "if") will be kept out of the
news until either the case is dropped or when charges are formally filed.
