11:47 a.m.: Much blather about Scrushy leading prayer with his "Amen Corner."
(For those of you not familiar with the trial, Scrushy suddenly decided to join a mostly black church after he was indicted. He also hired a black attorney. Birmingham proper has a large African-American contingency. I'll let you draw your own conclusions.)
11:50 a.m.: The GGB prediction -- he'll get off scot free. Not because I think he's innocent.
11:51 a.m.: Anyone who's ever worked for HealthSouth will tell you the idea that Scrushy knew nothing about the fraud being perpetrated by the corporation is complete bupkus.
11:58 a.m.: Verdicts being read. He's been acquitted on one conspiracy count. Waiting for the others.
11:59 a.m.: Counts 1-15. Not guilty.
12:03 p.m.: Not guilty on all counts. What did I tell you?
