All Hands on Decks
After yesterday’s sudden whirl of activity, the journos were back in the second floor canteen using the free WiFi or camped out in the twelfth floor alcoves; the jury is back deliberating; Amy St. Eve took half a day to sentence a Chicago area grocer/terrorist to 21 months in jail. Brit biographer Tom Bower is speculating as to which of Black’s London clubs might expel him if he’s convicted: “They can’t pitch him out for simple criminality. I suppose if he stops paying his fees that might do it.” Where last week the Canadians played euchre in the halls today the Brits engaged in a spirited game of gin rummy. In the meantime, after having reported on an imaginary note from the jury, Mark Steyn bravely admitted he was actually blogging from Spain. Hasta la vista, baby.
