Jurors’ Valentine


The Jury in the “Scooter” Libby trial came into the courtroom, all but one, wearing red T-shirts with cutout white paper hearts stuck on in honor of Valentine’s Day. One of the jurors, a math school teacher from North Carolina who has on at least two occasions shown the Judge photos of his grandkids, stood up and made a little speech. My bet is that he’ll become the jury foreman; and the one juror who didn’t put on a red tee? surely the likely holdout when it comes to a verdict. She’s an Art curator.
