Last person out, turn off the lights
Earlier this week it was Juror No. 7, and now the foreman of the Scott Peterson jury has been dismissed. That's the same as the number of Bush cabinet officials who resigned this week. So what do you think is going to happen first?the Scott Peterson trial will lose all 18 jurors,* or the Bush administration will lose all 16 cabinet members?†
*Jury: 12 original, 6 alternate, only 3 of whom are left (in fact, the just-dismissed foreman was originally an alternate who replaced a juror who was dismissed in June).
†Cabinet: 15 executive department heads, plus the Vice President.
