"There's the temptation to handicap this trial like a horse race, to try to figure out who's ahead and who's behind, to lay odds on whether Rae Carruth will face death or walk away. But this is not some sporting event arranged for our pleasure. The only true residents of Carruth World are the families and friends, the jurors and lawyers, the people who will have to live with the verdict from that day on. We owe justice to all those people...We owe justice to Rae Carruth"
