Free Milton!



As promised, here's a link to this week's cover.

So yesterday, which was Ash Wednesday, Milton donned his court-appropriate best as 75 potential jurors filed into Courtroom 6-A at the federal courthouse at Sixth and Market streets. They were there to either submit to their duty of citizenship or pull the "extreme hardship" card to get out of a three- to four-week investment. More than half claimed they knew too much about the defendant already, a good number of whom also raised their hands to indicate they weren't sure they'd be able to render a fair verdict. They were saying they'd heard the Tale of Milton and already think he's a smooth criminal.


And, while we're here ... Oscar de la Hoya, crossdresser? Discuss.
