    Just imagine if you got picked to be on the jury for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
    Damn, that would suck.

    A few reasons
    1. I'm sure the trial will take forever.
    2. If you convict, you will probably be a target from some extremist.
    3. If you acquit, you will probably be a target from some extremist.

    I wonder if he'll wear his signature oversized-headhole T-shirt?

    I hear they are selling them at Gap these days.

    Ahhhhh....you are forgetting the talk show circuit, the book deal and the movie rights, and then the reality TV series!!!! Especially if you are one of the so called "beautiful people".

    Will it be a jury trial or simply a judge?

    Good question. It would be much better if it were a judge - and if cameras were banned. Less of a circus, wouldn't you think?

    It sounds like we've finally found a job that would be perfect for Obama. Instead of voting to convict or acquit, he could just mull over the options forever.

    I think cameras should be banned from courtrooms in general.
