Gustavo on the Death of Don Haidl for KCRW!

SO...this past Monday, while ustedes were getting ready to stuff your guts or counting down the hours at work by trying to sneak a peak at Tube8, my first Orange County commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9 aired during All Things Considered. And the subject? The dearly departed Don Haidl.

I was no fan of Haidl, of course, but as I told KCRW host Steve Chiotakis, he will prove to be one of the most important men in OC legal history, given that he not only brought in Mike Carona and tore him down, but also how his raping son redeemed the Orange County's District Attorney's office from a low point. And you know I gave Moxley mad credit for it all.

Here's the commentary. You can hear it live every Monday afternoon between 4:30 and 5 p.m., or just wait until I recap in this infernal blog. Enjoy!
