RICO Suave

Former US Rep. William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson guilty on 11 of 16 counts. After 4 and a half days of jury deliberations, I am relieved.

Twenty years in prison is too much to ask for, as this system we got will probably give him 5 years in the clink and 10 years probation. They coulda let him keep his passport and escape to self-imposed exile.

Just hold the convictions up on appeal.

I knew you'd be thrilled. I was just waiting to see how you'd express it.
