    Pretty sure this is the first "grown-up" joke I can remember.

    What kind of beer has no head?

    So, do you think he was a leaf in a stream, caught up in lies told by others, who were looking to rat to get lighter sentences?

    He totally knew that just because he entertained the idea of having a meeting about the deal..he knew he was going to do time. And just being envolved ruined his chances in Washington for further work. The sad part is that his buddy lied on the stand, later told everybody he lied just to get only two years in jail to save his marriage...a year into his sentence ...the wife moved another man into the house...
