Order in the Court!

Darlings, I am so terribly sorry for my absence yesterday - I know there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth all over the world for the last twenty-four hours. Take a deep breath, everything is okay now.

As the Enron trial gets underway and the Saddam Hussein trial continues to, uh, do whatever it's doing, I'd like to suggest a new reality show: ORDER IN THE COURT!

In this fast-paced show, the Enron and Saddam trials will take place in adjoining courtrooms during the day. At night, the judges, defendants, and lawyers all live together in one big house. Crazy hijinx ensue: is Saddam ever going to do his dishes? Does Ken Lay know that Judge Raouf Abdel Rahman has a thing for the disgraced exec's wife? Which one of the lawyers left the milk out on the counter? Who will win the Hussein-Enron pickup basketball game, and how will it affect the outcome of the trial?

The juries, meanwhile, will of course be sequestered, so as not to be influenced by who looks better in the shower or talks more smack behind each other's back.

I just watched Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. I can't believe the lengths that the executives went to in the name of greed. I would highly recommend the movie for anyone who would like to get in depth information about the case before the trial.
