I've also never been a fan of Baldwin the person.
Jarhead - Yeah. You're probably right.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Guilty on Count 1 for involuntary manslaughter. Not guilty of Count 2 for tampering with evidence. What will this mean for Baldwin? Will it help him or hurt him? Discuss...

I believe a maximum sentence of 18-months and a $5,000 fine. I actually think the time she serves should be minimal given all of the circumstances and the evidence that came out at trial. However, the judge did remand her into custody immediately following the reading of the verdict, so this could signal the Judge's intention to have her serve some portion of the allowable sentence.

The case against Baldwin was dismissed.  JH probably has some better insight, but seems to me like the prosecution majorly screwed the pooch.
A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

A Brady violation. Basically, the prosecutors failed to provide the defense with evidence that could have been exculpatory, favorable or helpful to Baldwin's case.  In essence, there was a box of live ammunition that was turned in that could have had some bearing on the shooting. There may have been some report that was not disclosed, as well.

Ultimately, I do not really agree with the decision because based on the charged crimes, I don't think the ammunition is really material, which is a requirement in order for there to be a Brady violation.

But regardless, its over and it was really weird too with the special prosecutor basically calling herself to the stand to testify on the issue. I've never seen anything like that before. The special prosecutor should resign.

Sir Slash

I believe she also ruled earlier that Baldwin's role as Producer in the film could not be used by the Prosecution, a big blow to their case.

Yes. True.
