Looking at MSO in Dec. 2001 it had a Market Capital of 806,000,000 dollars. It now has a Market Capital of 450,000,000 due to overzealous prosecutors.
Having scanned through the pages of the latest document alleging perjury by a major prosecution witness, and apparently known by the prosecutors of the case, it looks like Martha will be vindicated.
Martha has lost more than just money. Her reputation has been ruined by the government. Many of her employees have lost their jobs.
Yes, the day is coming when I see Martha asking for what is writefully hers back.
Its interesting about General Readers background- He's got a law degree (perhaps from Yale) and exposure to the publishing business (hence his yahoo ID general reader). He was born a Catholic, and has moved to the west coast- Santa Barbara to be exact. I wouldn't be suprised if his first name were Andy.
<You were in publishing too, eh? I've come to the conclusion you have a personal vendetta against Ms Stewart- thats why you get so upset when someone like myself could apply reasonable doubt to the governments case- that a normal person- especially a 62 year old- could, and is likely to, forget details about an insignificant 2 minute call->
I've been forgetting things like 2 minute phone calls for years and I.m only 52.
Isn't Comey pretty young. Shame on him.
And I know calling you a Catholic is probably the worse insult anyone could label you, other than Muslim, so I'll stop. Its stupid (and boring) to even debate it.

(The criminal justice system is not the place to try to show that someone has a character flaw that they can't admit a mistake-it is a place to put criminals in jail for committing illegal acts that threaten society-the trade was legal- her comments immaterial -if not legally- at least practically- there was no threat to society from ignoring them- and the government has messed up far more than Ms Stewart. The governments mess ups are material and a threat to society- it shows the system can be manipulated to put anyone behind bars. That's the "lies" you should be concerned about- but I believe your personal dislike of Ms Stewart has clouded your judgement.
<I am not mad. I made no false statements. >
""You continue to be confused. I am not a Catholic and have never discussed religion on this Board. Like Martha, you seem to have difficulty acknowledging error. "
Another attempt to lie?
You have never discussed religion on this board- How do I know that you were raised a Catholic then?
You are not a Catholic- Thats a technicallity. Yes you are an atheist now- but many people would still consider you a Catholic, including myself, as it has ingrained guilt and a judgemental nature and your subosed "conscience" . (Yet if you read you posts on the Amazon board- your concience doesn't extend to not killing people- but lying- thats not to be tolerated.)
Suuuurre. He's smoking whacky tobaccy all the time while browsing Findlaw. Me thinks not. Parker is never shy to post LINKS to support his statements and garners a great deal of respect from that. A desperate attempt to bash an extremely well read dude. Parker rocks, you suck. End of subject.
<<You have to be kidding! Mariana testified she didn't overhear martha's conversation - what makes you think that is the truth? >>
Mariana Pasternak is a witness for the prosecution. It is their duty to ensure she is telling the truth. The defense also cross examined her. They would have loved to prove she wasn't telling the truth and would have exposed the fact if she had done something like call her ex husband and not admitted to it on the stand- it would have made her testimony about the later recollections even less believeable (Why would Martha talk to her on the bacony days later if she already knew?). The facts are she wasn't aware of any Imclone related information until several days later. Her ex husbands trade was independant of Stewarts trade. You have been duped by the government.
A guy with 100,000 shares of Imclone is NOT a big investor to a brokerage firm that deals in millions of shares! You should ask a broker too! Brokers and their firms are concerned with trading - not the value of a client's holdings.
You have to be kidding! Mariana testified she didn't overhear martha's conversation - what makes you think that is the truth? Since you claim this whole trial is full of lying, don't you think Mariana is capable of lying tooooo. . . . just like her soft memory of what she though martha said about how nice it is to have a friendly broker.
