Political message of the day...

Free Martha!

Not that she's innocent - I really doubt it. The reason she should be let loose is because it's a ridiculous, politically motivated prosecution that spent millions of taxpayer dollars over a few thousand in supposedly ill-gotten gains. And the biggest government charge (securities fraud, which got thrown out) was silly - her alleged crime there was lying about her guilt to stockholders before there was even a trial. Securities law has plenty of goofy things like that tucked away inside. The reason they went after her was for the political imagery that comes when you take somebody out of a courthouse in handcuffs with a raincoat over her head.

Thank goodness I'm my company's only stockholder.

It makes for some contentious board meetings, though!
