"Get to the point!" "No no, let me tell you a story....". Well, this doesn´t bode well for the proceedings. This is supposed to be a legal process, not a legacy-speech. It is as if Olmert thinks: "I will end up in jail, but the public must get the right proportions and perspective. Look: I did just a few things that were not so good, but look here at all the great things I did for the State of Israel." Well, this is both sad and hilarious. Olmert will fight and the whole thing can go on for years. But there will be a verdict, one day.
