Via Christine Hurt, I found the Houston Chronicle’s weblog of the Lay/Skilling trial. The first day, for a certain type of person (read: corporate law nerd) was a must-read. My favorite part was the human touch from Judge Lake at the end:
The judge extensively warned the jurors not to talk to friends and family about the case and warned that media reports are not evidence.
He said they will be supplied muffins for breakfast; he noted that the banana nut go fast and the medicinal-tasting cranberry never get eaten.
First thought: so supply and demand are out of whack? Sounds like the opportunity for a little creative trading to me! Second thought: tomorrow, the prosection and defense jointly fund a trip to starbucks for sixteen blueberry muffins. Not the non-fat version, the ones that make the next five trips to the gym dead weight loss.
