MOOSE, MEET NOOSE:

Jury Finds Moussaoui Eligible for Execution (Jerry Markon, Timothy Dwyer and William Branigin, 4/03/06, Washington Post)

A federal jury today found Zacarias Moussaoui eligible to die for his role in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, concluding that Moussaoui's lies to federal agents paved the way for the deadliest terrorist strike in U.S. history.

The unanimous verdict in U.S. District Court in Alexandria means that Moussaoui's death penalty trial will now move to a second phase, in which prosecutors will try to persuade jurors to vote for execution while defense lawyers seek to spare his life.

"will now move to a second phase"

Will they run out of phases in my lifetime?

There's an old story about a prison guard handing his watch to a condemned man on his way to the electric chair. The guard says, "Would you mind holding this. The battery needs charged." Maybe someone can ask moussaoui to hold a package of bacon in his lap. "I like it extra crispy..."
