Frum Forum's David Frum has a wonderfully incisive analysis of the key arguments in Tuesday's U.S. Supreme Court hearing of Conrad Black's "honest services" appeal.
As we waited for entry, I fell into talk with a group of Black well-wishers who had traveled from Toronto to line up on the courthouse steps before opening hours. Conrad Black’s beautiful daughter Alana tapped me on the shoulder on her way to the family seats for another round of the litigation that has consumed her father’s life. This is not a case of concern only to one man and his family – not only to the many admirers of Conrad Black who think it is long past time that he was returned to home, freedom, and creative work. It’s a case of concern to all Americans who might be caught in the toils of a law that blurs the very concept of what is criminal and what is not.More on the appeal in the post below.
