Drinking from the Fire Hose
and trying not to drown

I'm not a big fan of The Onion, but I think Blake's acquittal should provide lots of fodder. I can envision the prosecutor's office announcing that they will no longer try cases against Hollywood stars; that the cases are too expensive to prosecute and that with the best defense money can buy, the odds of a conviction are too slim to make a trial worthwhile.

Blake's acquittal, by the way, leaves me with mixed emotions. When I was a kid, Baretta was one of my favorite shows and sometimes, when Blake was scheduled as a guest on Johnny Carson's show, I'd stay up late to watch. Blake told good stories about his youth and the hard times he'd gone through. I have fond memories of watching him back then, and that part of me is relieved that he wasn't found guilty. The rest of me, however, suspects he got away with murder.
