Faith in Humanity Renewed!
« on: March 09, 2018, 05:21:05 pm »
These days, reading about the goings on in the USofA, I had come to the conclusion that it must have been all that lead-dust that has caused Americans to be so completely insane. But today I read that Martin Shkreli, boy wonder of the pharmaceutical world, got sentenced to 7 years for defrauding investors.  Harpers Magazine has graciously published a portion of the transcripts from the juror selection process prior to his trial. I have concluded that my previous conclusion about lead-dust and Americans must be wrong.

Awfully decent of you to wind back the tarring.
