Lynne Stewart and our freedom

There is no recent case more chilling to our civil rights than the efforts by the Bush Adminstration to jail for 30 years, the defense lawyer, Lynne Stewart. Today was her sentencing date, and I have yet to see any news report to how she fared. I think that her letter to the judge that is presented on her defense website shows the type of human being she really is.
Compare her to a Dick Cheney or a Donald Rumsfield, who are folk that truly do deserve jail time and in a very big way too. Then one can see how sick our US society actually is in that they get to walk free, while she gets shuffled into a cell for basically just doing her job.
