Verdict is In

It's been nearly a year since Laci Peterson disappeared. Today, a California jury told her killer his fate. His fate is death. And if there was ever an individual for whom the death penalty was designed, it is Scott Peterson -- a man who cheated on his pregnant wife and then killed her.

Although I believe that Scott Peterson deserves to die, I am surprised that the California jury opted for the ultimate punishment in light of the sparse direct evidence in this case. After all, Cali ain't no Virginia.

I'd also like to note that the jury wrapped things up just in time. Now America can turn its full attention to the Robert Blake murder trial.
