As jury selection dragged on today hopes of seating a jury by Thursday are diminishing.
It now appears that a jury will be empanelled by the end of business Thursday; the judge has indicated that it may be a long day.

There were moments of levity though, as when one candidate, a school teacher from North Carolina who is disabled from rocky mountain spotted fever and moved to the DC area in part to be close to NIH, told the court that he felt Vice President Cheney might well be an honest man, but he wouldn’t want to go duck hunting with him. He also showed the judge photos of his grandchildren before leaving the witness stand.
