I was a juror in Judge Prevas court once. He's a good judge.

I think that, in Baltimore, the death penalty should be given preemptively to all those who misspell Antoine or Dante. The one poor guy in these pages who spelled Dante correctly was a murder VICTIM.

He is. A great judge even, down there every day slogging it out in the trenches of justice to a degree I could never stomach!
