Time for the gnat-sized American attention span to pivot to something else. The sheep are bored with this mind-numbing testimony that has a major impact on the nation.

Benghazi is front-and-center on Drudge. Who the Hell is Jodi Arias?

I wouldn't have been as kind as you about the attention spans, though...

How many cattle on the Jodi Arias Trail this year? Has it been a good year?

I am so tired of hearing about this. I just don’t get why this case rates 24/7 non-stop national attention when the Gosnell case is virtually ignored.

Agreed. The endless attention the media has given some random ho who has no bearing on our lives is astounding. What’s even more pathetic is the amount of people who have dedicated so much energy to following this meaningless case. So many people truly are mindless lemmings.

The same reason that the baby killer from Florida got the same treatment: both women are reasonably good looking. If they were fat or plain looking we would have NEVER heard about these cases. Never.

Yep.

Between this and the Cleveland case, the networks will be able to skip merrily past the Congressional hearings on their evening newscasts.

Nobody cares.

She reminds me of my wife’s sisters and many other women I know of. Anything they do which is less than honorable, moral, or ethical is someone elses fault. The perp is usually another man or a woman who is attractive and well liked by most.

I doubt she'll get the death penalty. She;ll be out in 10 years. But at least she will be convicted.

If she had used a different defense she could have been acquitted. All she had to do was say she was trying to rid the world of an MLM pest.

I hope you are wrong Nick. I know well you could be so right. Martinez does have one woman on death row he prosecuted. Of course she will spend her life on death row. Little chance of execution. The last woman executed in Arizona was in 1930.

When they first started describing the crime, I thought they were talking about the Winnie Ruth Judd crime. But then remembered she did get out of prison eventually.

Oops, answered the wrong question!

1930: Eva Dugan (rest removed to protect the squeamish...hj)

A former Alaskan cabaret performer, Dugan relocated to warmer climes, took a job keeping house for a reclusive, wealthy rancher.

After he axed her position, she axed the rancher, ransacked his home, stole his car, and fled to New York.

A mysterious teenage accessory, “Jack”, was never found. Eva was picked up and extradited after the missing rancher’s remains turned up in a shallow grave.

The grizzled former frontierswoman — she followed the Klondike gold rush in her youth — took her fate nonchalantly.

I reckon in 1930, it was. Although, the DOC still uses it.

Eva Dugan She had been married five times, and all her husbands had disappeared.
I wonder what happened to them?

More:
After her conviction, in her final statement, she told the jurors, “Wal, I’ll die with my boots on, an’ in full health. An’ that’s more’n most of you old coots’ll be able to boast on.” She would remain defiant to the end.

Dugan gave interviews to the press for $1.00 each and sold embroidered handkerchiefs she knitted while imprisoned to pay for her own coffin. She also made for her hanging a silk, beaded "jazz dress", but later relented and wore a cheap dress as she was worried that her silk wrapper "might get mussed." She remained upbeat, so much so that Time magazine called her "Cheerful Eva" in a March 3, 1930 story about her execution.[1]

I did not know about the five husbands. I went to school with a girl who killed two husbands in the small town in which I was raised. She was abused by both. She got away with the first one. Shot him accidentally while cleaning her loaded shotgun. Then...she killed the second one...cleaning her loaded shotgun. Sheriff arrested her for that one. She served many years. Lives in Arizona now. Never remarried. Thank goodness.

Never remarried.

I guess there would be some man out there willing to, but seems to me the risk is too great. Do you think that the death of her first husband was less justified than she made it out to be? I saw something about a woman in AZ who killed 3 husbands, and was never tried for any of them, because it was supposedly self defense.

I do not know if it was justified or not. I do know the people in town said both husbands abused her. But the same question always asked...why did she not just leave? The sheriff knew. He let her get by with the first shooting. Not the second.

Do you think JOdi will get the death penalty now that they did find felony and premeditated murder, Nick?

Well, it seems like a lot of people don’t like her. She may very well get the death penalty. I don’t think she will ever be executed. But if she ends up serving life, it will be a long time. At 32 years old, she could be spending more than 50 years in prison.

“Who in the hell is Jodi Arias? Should I care?”

I hear you; I’ve been hearing on the news for a couple of days that a verdict would be forthcoming, and had no idea what they were talking about. I still have no idea, and I still don’t care.
