What Will Greta Van Susteren Do?

Scott Peterson has been convicted. Well, at least Greta can now bore us silly with the question of sentencing. Was the public really interested in this trial or was it just filling a vacuum on cable? One of the major results of the OJ case has been the nearly endless parade of tedious trials on television, none of them remotely as interesting as watching the Juice get away with cold-blooded murder in front of our eyes. What’s interesting (faintly) about the Peterson case is that he was found guilty with virtually no real evidence. Orenthal Simpson had Ron Goldman’s (a man he allegedly had never met) blood splattered in the back of his Bronco and walked. Do I think Peterson should have walked too? I have no opinion. I switched off the case months ago.
