The conflict-of-interest trial of Downey Councilman James S.

It is one of the more enduring and interesting of human truths: how the needs that inspire faith can also occasion gullibility. One's yearning for a higher love may persuade a person to believe in miracles, but it can also leave one vulnerable to scams.
