Judy Does the Perp Walk

//Duke Cunningham was given a check for at least $400,000 by a defense contractor to whom he awarded federal contracts and has (and will) receive little more than a slap on the wrist. Judith Miller refused to tell a grand jury the name of a source for a story she never wrote and will spend the next four months in prison. Creedence puts it best:It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no senator’s son. It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate one. Some folks are born silver spoon in hand, lord don’t they help themselves. But when the taxman come to the door, the house looks like a rummage sale.

//Matt Cooper--as previously discussed--will look like a rat (even though his source apparently released him from their agreement of confidentiality) and testify before the grand jury.

//London also will be hosting the 2012 olympics, beating out New York City. See Ray Ratto's story on why we don't care.
