Now Playing: Procrastination--it's the sin of the nation
Topic: My trial--get on with it!
OK, I know you've all been waiting impatiently for the court case with the drunk driver who ran me down. It seems like that was a lifetime ago. I just want them to get on with it and get it over with so I can get on with my life.
So what's the holdup? Well, it's been scheduled and postponed over a dozen times. Every time the appointed day arrives, there is some big news story that gets in the way. I mean there were a couple of hurricanes, a mine explosion, a reporter who is missing in Iraq, and even "Gov. Ahnold" got a ticket for driving his motorcycle without a license! I mean, these things are so important, but apart from the governor's faux pas, none of them have anything to do with California, and that's where my trial (well, OK, the trial for the guy who hit me) is going to be.
I think I finally figured out why the judge keeps asking for postponements. Word has it that he has his vision set on either a Senate seat or the governor's job. What does that have to do with it? Elementary, my dear Watson! If there is no competition for the news once the trial gets started, he figures he can milk it for all it's worth and get as much mileage out of this one as Judge Ito got from the OJ case.
Ah, to be a "normal" person--one without all the strings of fame attached. Well, stay tuned. the latest word I had was that the trial will start on Feb. 5. Wait a minute! I just glanced at my calendar. That's a Sunday! There's still something mighty fishy about this, and it's not in the sushi!
