A Virginia court is currently hearing the sentencing trial for Zacarias Moussaoui, a confessed Sept. 11 conspirator. What has gone wrong in the trial so far?
(View the infographic here)
>> In five sessions in a row, goat ate stenographer’s notes
>> Judge had hard time buying that no one on jury had ever heard of Sept. 11
>> Evidence revealed flight-simulator program on which Moussaoui trained was pirated

>> Henry Fonda selected as Juror No. 8
>> Defense attorney Edward MacMahon just kept chuckling and repeating his witnesses’ funniest statements
>> More than anything else, primitive and sluggish judicial system

Except that I had not the slightest idea who Henry Fonda was, I found the other ones quite amusing.
