I wouldn't expect to hear any news on this, election cycle over, story
played out...

There's a teacher looking at 40 years in the big house, she was
convicted in an American court too. What's your point?

How has it ceased to work? I, for one, just changed jobs for an 18%
pay raise - life is GOOD!! Unemployment is at a record low... I mean,

an international stage.

I'm not sure I could find a post where you had something good to say
