This is the Day

The jurors WILL reach a verdict today in the CIETC salary scandal trial in Davenport. Guarantee it. No, just kidding. Just wishful thinking. Gone are the back-to-back days of beautiful, sunny days with temps in the 70s. It still might be close to 70, but it's crummy outside today. Dark and rainy. Appropriate for our mood as the jury drags into its third full day of deliberations.

There's just not a lot to write about. We think the jury is getting lunch again at the Starting Line bar down the street again. We ate there Tuesday. They ran out of chicken and iced tea. Good thing I didn't want either of them. I did order chicken wings. Apparently, wings were in ample supply. No luck if you are more of a breast guy.

We had good Italian yesterday for lunch. I had the all-you-can-eat spaghetti. Although, much to the disappointment of my table mates, I only had one plate. Not sure what today brings. We like to wait until the jury orders, so we know it's safe to leave the building.

Yes. There's not much happening yet. But when it does, we want our bellies full.

Make sure that it's good and rainy when you're doing your live update at 5 and 6.

It's always good to have nasty weather when you're standing outside waiting to tell everyone that nothing happened.
