Another ‘not guilty’ plea came in from the Corrupt Bastards Club today. This time it’s John Cowdery, who entered the courtroom in a wheelchair being pushed by his attorney.
Boy, we’ve seen it all – hardships and sad stories, children without fathers, tears, pleas for postponements, standing on roadsides with signs, health issues of various forms….it’s just painful to watch.
In medieval times, they used to put heads on pikes and leave them on display as a cautionary warning to those contemplating lives of crime. That was 800 years ago…you’d think people would have figured it out by now. Despite Cowdery’s insistence of his innocence, I think Alaskans are about ready to see another one of those figurative heads up there on the ramparts.
We’re pretty used to this by now, and nothing out of the ordinary happened today. However, it’s worthy of note that although Ted Stevens lawyers were told to get a 500-gigabyte hard drive in order to obtain the gargantuan amount of evidence to be used against him, Cowder’s lawyer was told he needed a 750-gigabyte drive! Holy moly, folks. We may have found the winner of the gigabyte prize. Although, we haven’t heard from the favorite yet. I think Don Young may have them both beat. We’ll see.
