Michael, I don't discount the idea that there could be prejudice - I'm a
long way from Florida and have only spent a couple of weeks there on
vacation so I can't pronounce on the locals' attitudes towards race -
but wouldn't you want hard evidence to convict someone on a murder rap
and send them to Death Row or life imprisonment? The prosecution didn't
have anything much beyond the guesswork we're all engaging in here on

- it happens, don't doubt that.
