I can’t talk much because I’m on a plane waiting to take off at DFW, but this is one news story that hasn’t been given enough attention. I don’t say that because I think it hasn’t gotten enough press – it certainly has. But is anyone paying attention? His driver got 66 months in jail! If someone who helped him do something he was already doing got that many years, I can imagine how many years someone who helped him live will get. I hope his sous-chef hired a good lawyer. I predict 10 years in federal prison.
