Jackson verdict reached

close

Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my 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 have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

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.
