The cynics among us should keep this in mind the next time a judicial decision
temps them to scream that the system is broken. The system works as well as the
participants, and in this case the judge did his job. But without omniscience we
will never have a perfect system.
Hallelujah! "annwandering" I agree with you. He won't be
incarcerated as long as we think. I haven't heard any of any charges of
selling or sharing but I haven't read every single article about this slime
How many years of jail time can we reasonably expect on these charges? I am
thinking not as many as people seem to expect. Now if he were selling or sharing

I think the reason Susan Powell's journals were confiscated was to keep the
Powells from "publishing" them on the internet. I also think that we
