The Way We Were...

Judy Miller’s Note-Triggered Mem' ries
The main attraction, of course, was journalist and former New York Times reporter Judith Miller. She looked stunning, very pretty and impeccably groomed. The reporters in the courtroom all turned to watch her stride into the courtroom, chin up. Her lawyer, Washington powerhouse Bob Bennett, took a seat behind the Government’s table. She was calm as she took the stand.

Fitzgerald did a crisp and clean direct examination, taking only 40 minutes to go through her career, how she hooked up with Libby, their meetings, her legal fight over being subpoenaed, her 85 days in jail, and her two subsequent grand jury appearances. Judy and Fitz were like a well-oiled machine. Unlike Ari who played to the jury, Judy directed her answers to Fitz, occasionally turning to the jury to explain a term, but then returning her attention to Fitz. The jury hung on to every word. <
Mem'ries, light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures, of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we, could we

Mem'ries, may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
Even under oath

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were

email of the day -

"I learned today that Libby actually testified before the grand jury that he discovered in his notes that the vice president was the first one to make him aware of Valerie Plame. It is incomprehensible that you can continue in your indictment of perjury against Libby knowing he made this testimony to the grand jury. The only reason you can still be pursuing this action is because you are more consumed by power than the people you accuse of abusing power.
I cannot fathom how you sleep at night! You are truly more dangerous than any crooked politician in Washington."

Someone never read the original indictment, or they would already know this.

They don't seem to understand that Scooter and the Veep can talk about classified information, but that Scooter can't reveal it to anyone without a security clearance. Nor do they understand that he is charged with lying to the investigators about so doing.

I've had enough of some bloggers at other sites psychoanalyzing the witnesses today...nothing enlightening or interesting about their comments to me...

Have a great day tomorrow, Fitzie! :)

Did the fall foliage remind Little Irve that Judy was sitting in jail because of him? Or did the liar's seat get too hot?

How come that e-mailer knows what happened with the grand jury? Loose Lips Libby.

Mr. Fitz, in spite of what we have read or think of Judy--taking the high road with her was the best thing to do.

Night, T.

"Our investigations found high-quality science struggling to get out," Francesca Grifo of the watchdog group Union of Concerned Scientists told members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

A survey by the group found that 150 climate scientists personally experienced political interference in the past five years, for a total of at least 435 incidents.

Bush/Cheney should have to answer for this and no double speak.

Fitz it's not a surprise that some still fight for the loser remember Charles Manson still have fans. I wonder how your email friend will feel when he/she hears the full story of how Bush/Cheney planned the invasion and knew the information they had was false. People are strang all our troops are dying based on lies by the White House.

Sometimes you gotta shake your head and laugh at people's ignorance! If they cared enough to write that nasty email..why didn't they care enough to read the indictment and understand it first?? Sheesshh.. fools! LOL

LOL! The way we were.. You're bad, Fitz. But, it brings tears to my eyes reading that emotional song. Excuse while I blow my nose on that song. It must be the gumbo today that making me mushy.

And about the email. You damned if you do and you damned if you don't. You should ask the nimrod to write a letter to Gonzo to give the DOJ a decent government credit card instead the 58 cent gov't card that you were given as a budget! Leaders take on and embrace criticisms. Losers listen to the wimpout and broke brother-in-law that thinks like the nimrod that sent that email who is simply clueless to why it is important that this investigation to be secretive, how corrupted the Administration is, and how hard you and your team have worked on this case.
