A quick lesson in Fulani

A. Patterson writes:

In the entry, “The Manhattan DA’s costly experience with an African complainant who doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies,” you wrote:

Diallo’s attorney is going to seek a special prosecutor for her case, because of the District Attorney’s refusal to proceed. Her case was thrown out because she’s a total liar, and now she says she deserves a special prosecutor because her case was thrown out. That’s like the old saw about the young man who murdered his parents, then asked for the court’s mercy because he was an orphan. What’s the Fulani word for chutzpah?

I’m afraid I don’t know, either. But I do know that “Nafissatou Diallo” is Fulani for “Crystal Mangum.”
