On what's important

Now, I was eagerly looking forward to the spectacle of seeing Martha Stewart in handcuffs as much as the next guy, but I'm honestly wondering now: It's the "top story" on most of the news channels and websites today. Now really: is this actually the very most significant thing happening in the world right now?

Amusedly, I found myself walking around work today saying to myself "They should give her the chair. The Chair. The Chair!"

Dude - it's only over $45,000 US. That's nothing compared to other financial crimes going on right now. lol

True enough. I think actually what they want her ass on is that she lied about it in sworn statements.

I did indeed hear she stands a good chance of acquittal as a "sympathetic defendant" ... all someone has to do is bring up Kenneth Lay and how many billions of dollars he was busted fucking around with, and he got off relatively scot-free.

Re:
I think its also because she's *Martha* the 'perfect'. This is tickling everyone pink because it's like catching Miss Goody Two Shoes Know it All smoking pot in high school ;)

Being a tool for a guy I knew who had graduated and wanted a particularly nasty-smelling acid for a college dorm prank. I was dumb. The guy later got arrested for embezzling computer time.

Yeah he wasn't the best pick I ever made for a friend. Oh well, it was long ago.
