Justice Delayed is not Justice Denied

In contrast to the faster-than-a-Qwest-fiber trial of Joseph Nacchio, the trial of media baron Conrad Black seemed to drag on forever. When the jury started warning the judge they were having trouble reaching a verdict, it got pretty scary. But on Friday, July 13, Black was found guilty of multiple counts of fraud and one count of obstruction of justice (albeit innocent of racketeering).

This means more than just the downfall of another arrogant media bigwig. Black was a neocon brute, a former member of the British House of Lords who was very tied into the arch-conservative new-imperialist movement. He was prosecuted by Patrick Fitzgerald, the same attorney who took on Scooter Libby.
This is one neocon bastard who got exactly what he deserved.
