let's all rush outside the courtroom...

with our color-coded scarves and our (mis)marked placards in our incredible rush to be the very First to report whether media icon Martha Stewart was found guilty or not on this or that charge- by a few milliseconds!   i don't suppose even one of those fools possessed sufficient maturity to walk out of the courtroom, secure in the knowledge that the average viewer cares Not One Iota who was First to report something that became common knowledge worldwide before any of them finished their close-ups.   i'm sure they all looked beautiful on camera after tripping over one another like 6 yr olds at Baskin Robbins in Death Valley.   what a disgusting display of unprofessionalism; it's really too bad this isn't a singular incident.

everyone hates the media circus that pop icon trials have become (except the media); they should assign an officer of the court to report facts to the media en masse.   sure, i enjoyed watching Martha sulk past the Teeming Hordes with their microphones and cameras, as much as any of my fellow upper-lower-classmates did.   who hasn't had an urge to see a Fat Cat finally get nailed for (their routine) cheating at games most of us will never play?   she most likely deserves any penalty imposed on her (the jury evidently believed so).   nevertheless, Martha's unwillingness to accept a loss of $X on stocks she held is no more damnable a character fault than the kindergarten professionalism of reporters shown on this and many other occasions.   take away their damn recess already, and send a note home to Mom.

miscreants will be silenced, and hunted down by an ever-growing, unsleeping horde of darkly efficient Hideous Minions, each more terrible than the last, singularly and collectively gripped with an insatiable lust to brutally inflict whatever arbitrary and horribly whimsical retribution seems most ridiculously inappropriate to them at the time.
