Hoggard praises the N&R for putting springsteen above the fold instead of the Jackson verdict. I'm not so sure. The verdict, which I considered somewhat surprising, is still a big story. Perhaps not a banner headline, but certainly above the fold, at least in this subscriber's opinion.

I know our jury system's not perfect, but it's all we have. The Jackson jurors deliberated longer than OJ's jurors, which would lead anyone to believe they considered the matter carefully.

But is it unreasonable to be disturbed by comments from jurors following the case? One believes Jackson has molested children in the past, while another expressed personal disdain for the accuser's mother.

Better that a guilty man go free than an innocent man be locked up.
