So, Blake Got Off, eh?

Well, here I am, once again, in the bowels (such an ugly term - better than "colon", though) of the factory\warehouse (facwa) here in cold, rainy Tennessee. The usual paranoid, hectic rush spurred on by upper management has died out (they've all gone home - I think) and now is the time we just settle calmly in to do the evening's work. No hectic rush. No paranoia. Go figure.

I was just checking out CNN and noted this item:

A California jury today acquitted actor Robert Blake of murder and solicitation to murder in the 2001 slaying of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley. Leaving court, Blake said he never lost hope and "if you live to be a million, you will never ever in your life meet anyone more blessed than me."

Yes, indeedy. Blessed, huh? Well, maybe. That is if he really didn't do it. Which I doubt. More like "pretty damn lucky you played 'Baretta' and not Charles Manson (Steve Railsback - 1976)"

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said he was "pretty surprised" by the verdict.

I wasn't. Hell, this is Baretta we're talking about, here. Unless you have actual physical evidence or witnesses, you're not going to get a conviction. Michael Jackson? Well that's another story...

So much for not doing the crime if you do not wish to do the time.
