... gotten so out of whack:
The defense of George Zimmerman will likely rest today, so with closing arguments that will take most of tomorrow the jury should have it by Friday.
Zimmerman is the latest Bernie Goetz; another wholly unlikely cult figure who currently campaigns for vegetarian lunches in public schools and squirrel rescue. It's not that the two men had anything particularly in common. Unlike Goetz, it is very unlikely that Zimmerman jumped the gun, so to speak, but they both fill a similar niche. They represent the embattled lower half of the middle class.
My sincere hope is that the jury has listened to the evidence and will quickly reach a verdict of Not Guilty before close of business on Friday.
