Objection

Have you been following the Hans Reiser case? He claimed he didn't kill his wife and then -- after being convicted of murder -- said, actually, he did kill his wife.

From the Examiner:
Handcuffed to his attorney, Reiser led authorities Monday to the remains of his missing wife, Nina Reiser. The body was buried in a 4-foot-deep hole in the Oakland hills. Reiser told authorities that he hopes a cherry tree can be planted to mark the grave site.

Hold up, they handcuffed him to a lawyer? Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. [Rimshot. -ed.]
