Our local news stations are all agog about the sentence of Lord Conrad Black, former media magnate, just sentenced to 6 years for fraud with Hollinger Inc.
I can't help but wonder why Martha Stewart got such a light sentence for her insider trading (five months, and wasn't it served at home or something?).
The higher they stand, the harder they fall? Black and Stewart were among the wealthiest people on the planet.
Both of them bilked people, but it seems the sentences are weird, but what do I know.
