Jackson verdict reached


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

As I write, the breaking news is that a verdict has been reached in the Michael Jackson trial. I was fairly certain a very quick verdict would be reached, and when that didn’t happen I thought there’d be a long deliberation – that hasn’t happened either. So I’m not sure what that indicates, and the verdict has yet to be announced. Unfortunate timing for the papers – by the time the verdict is announced, there’ll be next to no time to reorganise the whole paper. Though I expect the bones of the story will already have been written, and it’ll just be a case of fleshing out the descriptive detail. There’ll be more from me on the verdict tomorrow, or maybe later tonight if you’re lucky. Bet you can’t wait.
