"Just so you know how things work around here..."

From TalkingPointsMemo:
A Texas judge has thrown out those indictments of Dick Cheney and Alberto Gonzalez that we thought, correctly it turned out, were little more than a publicity stunt by a run-amok South Texas prosecutor.

Upon dismissing the indictments, the judge admonished the prosecutor: "I suggest on behalf of the law that you not present any cases to the grand jury involving these defendants."
[emphasis added]

"Dontcha know that these defendants are not to be prosecuted?!?!? Period. That's how things work around here."
