Location, Location, Location...

so many facilities to choose from. Where these evil doers will end up, nobody knows.

FYI, the
Federal Bureau of Prisons (an agency of the Department of Justice) does not permit conjugal visits - that should teach them not to throw sand in the eyes of justice.

I recommend Fox River. So that they can prepare for a breakout, Michael, Lincoln, Abruzzi, Tea Bag, Sucre, and others. As for conjugal visit, the blogger can send a blowup doll.

Conjugal visit, huh? That might be a problem for the little soldier and Cheney. This will ruin their "uptime" enjoyments! Ah, location for prison? I choose Trenton State prison (or called Rahway State prison). Have each of the players have cellmates that lifers in prison for murder . Maybe that will sent a message to the players for murdering all of the soldiers that they sent to invade a country on false pretenses!

Final posting:

This is an update on Enron case for today. Here is an excerpt of Berkowitz' crossexamination with Skilling. Berkowitz did great!

Skilling Wraps Up Enron Trial Testimony

Berkowitz brought up the tax allegation during his second pass at cross-examining Skilling Thursday. The issue stemmed from one the federal prosecutor first raised on Tuesday regarding Skilling's investment in an ex-girlfriend's online photo-sharing company, which did business with Enron.
Neither issue is related to charges against Skilling, but Berkowitz used them to challenge the ex-CEO's honesty.
Skilling told jurors Tuesday he invested $60,000 in the company and didn't inform Lay or Enron's board in writing. He also told the

Securities and Exchange Commission several years ago that the photo company had a $3,000 contract with Enron.
Berkowitz showed jurors he actually invested $180,000 in the company, and it did $450,000 in business with Enron.
Skilling later said he was taken off guard when Berkowitz raised the issue, but since remembered that he told Lay about it at the time and got his numbers wrong when he first testified about it.
On Thursday, Berkowitz asked about two $10,000 gift checks Skilling wrote to the same ex-girlfriend — check No. 277 dated December 1997, and No. 276 dated March 1998. Berkowitz asked if Skilling actually gave both amounts to the woman in March 1998, but backdated one check to December to avoid paying taxes on a gift of $10,000 or more.
Skilling said he didn't remember the checks, but insisted he has paid all the taxes he owes. In a resigned voice, he asked if Berkowitz was suggesting he shirked paying his taxes.
"I'm suggesting, sir, that you backdated a check to avoid paying taxes to the IRS," Berkowitz replied.
"I told you I don't recall that," Skilling said, adding that he "never shirked from my duty to pay taxes to the United States of America."
Skilling had told jurors he dated the woman in 1997 and 1998 — after he divorced his first wife. When Berkowitz pressed him Thursday on when the relationship ended, he said they remained friends and occasionally dated after that.
"What does this have to do with fraud at Enron Corporation? Just out of curiosity," Skilling asked with a sliver of sarcasm.
"Can you answer my question, Mr. Skilling?" Berkowitz said.
"We continued to have a relationship, yes," the ex-CEO said.
Then the prosecutor addressed Enron's code of ethics, which required approval of executives' investments in companies that did business with Enron and which Skilling acknowledged "probably" applied in his situation — particularly given the personal connection.
"You asked what this had to do with fraud at Enron," Berkowitz said.
"OK, now I understand," Skilling replied.
The prosecutor then asked if the ex-CEO expected jurors to "rely on your word here, sir?"
"That's right," Skilling said.


Score: Berkowitz: 3 Skilling: 0

Have a good evening, folks! Signing off!

It seems kind of odd to give conjugal visits to one who can barely conjugate a verb.

Mr. S.S.--You are most welcome. Keep up your good work/entertainment. I will give a listen to your new song in a few.

Haha book critic.

On the local news tonight, Sen. Pat Roberts is announcing that HUD is allocating funding for Kansans.

I read something about BIG money going thru HUD (read on the net, so took with a grain of salt though) basically unchecked and abused for certain special people. Hmmmm. (It is killing me what the deal is with Roberts.)

David Whittig of the Westar scandal got some medical prison in NY, he looked healthy to me. Westar is somehow related to the Enron deal, I think. Damn crooks.

Keep singing, Mr. SS ;-)

"Fitz is a reference to Patrick Fitzgerald, the Special Prosecutor who has indicted “Scooter” Libby and who is about to indict Karl Rove.

It is a traditional first comment in each thread here at FDL (Firedoglake). "

Mr. Fitzgerald,

Please don't have DOJ put Rove and his cohorts in a "Country Club Prison"

Those in Country Club Prisons live better than most of us. Having a Club Med Prison defeats the purpose of going to jail.

I visited a prison in my state for my Grand Jury service recently and I am so amazed that they live better than I do. Cable tv, schooling. Since I have been serving on my state's Grand Jury, I have lost faith in the legal system.

That is coming from a paralegal such as myself. I am very cynical about everything more so than usual.

I don't think prison is good enough for any of them. What we need is a new round of Nuremburg trials and some hangings for treason.

It is too bad that Central State in Indianapolis is closed and it was not a federal institution. That would have been a great place.
