The tale of the tape

Ever wonder how much of our lives is being captured on videotape?

I bet Barry Baker does.

When I was a kid I did a lot of dumb things. Hey, it's what kids do.

But I consider myself lucky. I grew up in a world without the Internet. Without Facebook. Without social media.

I have total deniability. There is no video evidence of some of the stunts I pulled.

Baker, as the entire world knows, does not have that luxury.

Last week he pleaded guilty to a heinous attack on a man with cerebral palsy.

It was the sucker punch heard round the world.

And of course it was captured on video.

I talk about it in this week's Letter From the Editor.
