Heres a riddle: What comes in group of four and is the color of Frenchs Mustard?
After a week of deliberations, the four alternate jurors have become the prime distraction for the assembled press corps and spectators in the courtroom.
On Thursday the alternates three women and one man caused something of a stir when they showed up in matching bright yellow shirts, hardly bothering to suppress their snickering as the judge addressed the main panel of jurors. Today they are all wearing red.
For nearly four weeks, 16 jurors heard all the evidence in Edwards case. After the closing arguments, Judge Catherine Eagles made the unorthodox decision to extend the service of the four alternate jurors, while the primary panel of 12 deliberated the six felony charges. So for the last five days of deliberations, the gang of four alternates has been required to show up at court each day, sent to a holding room with instructions to avoid talking about the case.
Since the alternates were identified last Thursday, it has been impossible to ignore the dynamic between Edwards and one of the female alternates, an attractive young woman with jet-black hair, who seems to have been flirting with Edwards for days.
The juror clearly instigated the exchanges. She smiles at him. He smiles at her. She giggles. He blushes.
The flirtation has become so obvious that even Edwards attorneys have to work to suppress their laughter at the absurdity of it all.

I'm such a studly hairball that bimbo's simply can't resist!
Breck girl at his finest...
Wow he’s just like Fonzie. All he has to do is snap his fingers and all the chicks run to him.
You know, if he does get to fool around with her,
making a video tape of the act would be a really cool idea.
(He’s a liberal - they are perfectly capable of making the same mistake over and over - heck, in a few months most of them will vote for zero, again!)
Is there some reason for the matching shirts? can someone explain?
Think it through. Edwards is on trial for his life. What is going on with the alternate jurors has Edwards and his attornies smiling. Ergo, what is going on with the alternate jurors benefits Edwards.
The alternate jurors, on the other hand, are doing something unusual and planned - wearing color-matching shirts that change color each day. And, the judge has done something unusual by allowing them court presence each day. Ergo, what is going on with the alternate jurors is a deliberate plan known and enabled by the judge (and the media).
So what do we have? The judge alternate jurors and media are enabling a plan that benefits Edwards.
What's that plan? Edwards is a scumbag attorney. If he thought he'd win, he wouldn't need these games. Therefore, he thinks he might lose. Therefore, he's setting up some way to win by stuffing the jury with alternate jurors, or - he's setting up his appeal, or a mistrial.
But make no mistake, he's not flirting, and he's not playing. He's a caged animal fighting for his life, and he's desperate. So he'll do whatever it takes to win - including kicking over the table.
maybe soon they’ll get matching orange jump suits
It sounds just like a plot point from John Grisham’s book The Runaway Jury. The matching shirts could be a sign from one of the jurors that is meant to prove their sway over the people in the matching shirts to someone who might be interested in a pre-determined outcome.
I bet he smiles at her like this guy.
The Judge is allowing this to happen simply because the Legal System is a group of former Lawyers, acting to benefit Lawywers (think about Class Action Lawsuits, where millions of dollars in cash go to Lawyers, and the "Plaintiffs" get coupons for future purchases).
This trial is going on 4 miles from where I live and work. An interesting observation is that virtually everyone in this town could care less about it happening here.
Everyone is sick of hearing about John Edwards. The only repeated comments I’ve heard are from folks who will be glad when it’s over, the media trucks leave and West Market St. in the downtown area will be three lanes again instead of two.
Ugh. I don’t know where to start.
First off, this is often seen with death row inmates- some crazy egg carrier who has daddy issues and problems with intimacy- ie: hates sex and is happy to live in an pretend world where a marriage will never be consumated- will attempt to forge an imaginary relationship with someone who is evil enough to have to be put down like a defective animal.
Secondly. Just ick. John Edwards is a defective human being. Even after the chips had fallen- getting caught cheating on a dying wife and trying to rationalize this adultery by saying it was done when she was in remission, denying the paternity of the daughter you sired, using a woman who was almost a century old to fund your whore, lying about your dead son (”I have never told anyone this story”), using other human beings to cover your sins and TO CLAIM PATERNITY OF YOUR DAUGHTER and last, but not least, SCREWING THE PEOPLE OF NORTH CAROLINA WHO VOTED YOU INTO OFFICE IN GOOD FAITH - homeboy still thought he could be considered for VP or AG.
Hey Johnny, do you think your dead son would be proud of you? Did you channel him to come up with the idea on getting Mrs. Mellon to put up her home to fund your ‘poverty center’? She deserves better than you. We all do. Too bad your ‘heart condition’ (cough, cough, bullsh!t) wasn’t The Big One.
You should be made to pay all the money back to the State of NC for the cost of this trial. A$$hole.
