I may be misunderstanding US law, but I don't believe that having the 
records sealed (which is what happened) is quite the same thing as being 
"exonerated" or having the charges "quashed" (which is what the Reg 
article claims.

Mind you, the Reg article seems to have been written by someone who 
knows nothing at all about Randal. See, for example, the misspelling of 
his name and the claim that he has written only two books about Perl.

I wonder if any of the Reg people subscribed to this list have any clout 
with the writers and can persuade them of the wisdom of actually 
checking the odd fact now and then :-)
