local big shots go to jail

The former head of a Fortune 500 family and a former rising political star are in jail for fraud. Richard Scrushy was sentenced to a lengthy jail term. Don Siegelman, former Democratic governor of Alabama, was implicated in taking kickbacks from Scrushy for pushing for his lottery deal. I voted for this scum. I can't help it, I couldn't stand his Republican opponent. We keep getting ripped off in Alabama.

I don't know much about the Scrushy case, but I've been closely watching the Conrad Black trial.

Hard to know how to call it.

I know, he just got pardoned. Bush had better be careful who the last president who got pardoned was.

Actually he was commuted, but yeah he skips jail time either way.

Paris did a grand total of a month. She got the celebrity treatment. She could have killed someone driving drunk.

How much time should one get if they go hunting drunk and shoot someone in the face?

Interesting. I recently saw "To Kill a Mockingbird". Gregory Peck was great as Atticus Finch. I went to school with the girl who played Scout, Mary Badham. She was excellent. I don't know why she didn't do any more movies.

Plenty. Dick Cheney got slapped on the wrist, just like his damned chief of staff.

Although Scott Horton's Harper's blogs regarding the case make for a captivating read, there are some notable factual gaps. But then, I see no reason why he should let those truths get in the way of what he is trying to prove.
