"Just so you know how things work around here..."
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.[emphasis added]
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."
"Dontcha know that these defendants are not to be prosecuted?!?!? Period. That's how things work around here."
