Quote of the Day

It is irrational that Mr. Angelos will be spending 30 years longer in prison for carrying a gun to several marijuana deals than will a defendant who murdered an elderly woman by hitting her over the head with a log.

- United States District Court Judge Paul G. Cassell (Utah), who sentenced both men on the same day (Angelos to 55 years, the murderer to 22 years).
