How does one select "a jury of his peers" for an actual Peer, anyway?
Well, we're about to find out. Jury selection began today in the trial of Conrad Black, who for years used his company Hollinger Inc. (and its shareholders' money) as his personal ATM, mainly because his sense of entitlement is so vast it has its own postal code. This loathsome tyrant spent a few years coercing the Canadian media into making him our own Murdoch, until he decided he'd rather be Lord Black of Crossharbour instead, and off he went to hump the scotch-soaked wool sacks at Westminster.
In his defense, his biography of FDR is phenomenal. It's so compassionate I've often wondered who really wrote it.
