"Complaining Witnesses" Just Doesn't Have the Same Ring

Michael Jackson's lawyers are asking a judge to stop the prosecution from using the term "victim" to describe the boy bringing the charges against him. You know, the victim. Somehow I don't think that the jury is going to be fooled. Give it whatever euphemism you want, those twelve people are still going to be thinking of him that way.

Speaking of juries, I got a summons this week for my turn potentially in the box. I know most people do what they can to get out of it, but since complaining about stupid juries is one of my favorite pastimes, it would be hypocritical of me to not attempt to raise the IQ by what I can.
