DA dilemma after SJC justice’s blunder
2014-08-20 00:40:10 (11 minutes ago) 

Jury instructions issued in a 2009 first-degree murder case by a newly appointed member of the Supreme 
Judicial Court were declared faulty yesterday by her new colleagues in a narrow 
decision that has prosecutors weighing their options.

Geraldine Hines, who was elevated to the state’s highest court earlier this month, failed to instruct jurors when she was a Superior Court judge that they could consider Mario Gonzalez’s “consumption of alcohol” when deciding whether he murdered his girlfriend, Luz Forty, in a “cruel or atrocious manner.”

Being a governor seems to be risky business these days.

Take the former chief executive of Virginia, for instance. Robert McDonnell and his former Redskins cheerleader wife are in the midst of a mildly sensational trial over charges they sold their influence for $165,000 worth of favors from a wealthy (well somewhat) businessman.

And of course there is Illinois, which seems to have a penchant for ending the political careers of the state’s top elected officials by sending them to the slammer.

If ever you overhear someone comparing you to a dog, chances are it’s not a compliment. Yes, there’s the famous loyalty of dogs, their unbridled enthusiasm for life, their boundless love and devotion, their fierce protectiveness—qualities that any of us would be lucky to possess at even a modicum of their standard manifestation in the canine. Typically, though, it’s meant as a slight and a reference to some especially animalistic aspect of our four-legged friends. That assertive woman people call a “bitch,” for instance (a term that has always struck me as being dubious; some of my kindest, gentlest companions in this world have been female dogs), or the lowlife “cur” who cheated you in that game of poker the other night.
