    @blf, StevoR, StonedRanger: BEHOLD! THE PARTY OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! If they refuse to call it “justice,” they can file it under “reparations.”

    @Intransitive: YES! (I was writing about that as you were posting your comment!) It’s nearly impossible for me to imagine an overwhelmingly white (11-1) jury in Georgia reaching that verdict without a competent and unbiased judge.
