    Should Martha go to jail? Hell Yes!!!!!!!! She violated both the spirit and the words of our laws. The verdict was correct. Now, let's see how many "more" WorldCom executives and even if one or two Enron executives pay a proportionate price for their crimes against honest hardworking Americans? I'm waiting for all those truths to come through, aren't you?

    Why do you call her a scapegoat, then you go on to agree that she broke the law and should see prison time? She did the crime and now she'll do the time. She IS NOT bearing the blame for others.

    No, but she's a WOMAN who dared do what men do all of the time. Therefore, OFF WITH HER HEAD!!!!!!

    Exactly, AtlantaWalter. She is also a hardcore Democratic Party supporter. A double whammy with this sexist, partisan administration!!!!!!! I think she conspired and profitted from it. I think there are thousands more with different political connections that did far worse and I am awaiting their verdicts even though many have never been as much as charged with a crime. We'll see how all this filters down.

    Yet you still didn't answer why you can't comprehend the definition of a scapegoat. I guess it just sounded pretty. :rolleyes:

    I think "made an example of" would be better than scapegoat.

    She is guilty, jimnyc. She was convicted by a jury of her peers and that's enough for me. My point is to identify the disparities with this conviction and exemplify the tenacious and over-reaching propensities of the partisan judicial branch that we have as they ignore the much more serious crimes of their party contributors. Maybe not now, maybe not ever, but I think the history books need to include some of these little niceties that Republicans tend to enamour one another with, don't you?

    Sure, let's include Republicans in that manner in our history books, God knows they're the only party to do anything at all underhanded.

    "She was convicted by a jury of her peers and that's enough for me" (quote Psychoblues)

    One of the members of the jury was an african from the dark continent...I don't think he would be Martha's peer and certainly not mine.

    I trhink the jury was selected with approvals from both the defense and the prosecutors. Many were excluded in the process. Your reference to the "dark continent" is both revealing and confusing. Please verify?
