The sorrows of being rich...
Seems that our lords and masters are a bit nervous about the notion that a jury of ordinary Americans might someday, somehow, decide their fate. See, for example, the case of Conrad Black pilfering millions:
[Conrad] Black's lawyers even argued (unsuccessfully) that their client could not get a fair trial because the average Chicagoan "does not reside in more than one residence, employ servants or a chauffeur, enjoy lavish furniture, or host expensive parties".
I, for one, would relish Darth Cheney's trial for looting billions out of the Treasury for the benefit of Halliburton while our soldiers died for his profit. Fair trial. Conviction. Rope. Just sayin', ya know?

Chiquita + terrorists: BFF?
Remember, if we don't pay off the terrorists, the terrorists have won!
Although, given Chiquita's past history, it might just be birds of a feather flocking together... Chiquita + terrorists: Best Friends Forever?
