In the Criminal Justice System...

There's an article in this month's Philadelphia magazine (not online, I don't think) about the race to succeed Lynne Abraham as the city's district attorney (yes, Philly, like New York, is about to have its first open D.A.'s race in decades.) It contained a shocking fact- the Philadelphia D.A.'s office has 580 employees. 580! I'd been led to believe, from 19 years worth of "Law & Order," that D.A. offices, like homicide squads, have only three people working in them at any given time.
