Dinnertime Musings-I'm still recovering from a busy 72-hour stretch, so blogging is coming back on line slowly. This was Topic One at our dinner table-federal prosecutors must of felt it was a good thing to indict Martha Stewart on obstruction of justice and securities fraud charges. The obstruction charge is one that is often easier to prove, as insider trading law leaves even finance professors' eyes glazed over, let alone Jane Juror. This will lead to a good blogfest on marijuana laws; a medicinal pot supplier got merely one day prison time from a federal district judge, and granted immediate release on time already served. That looks more like a judicial equivilent of jury nullification and makes the Ninth Circuit look conservative by comparison. This wasn't good news, especially when he was on my fantasy team-Sammy Sosa was caught using a corked bat. He had a lame excuse that the bat was for putting on homer shows at batting practice. So it's only cheating if you use it in a game?
