: : FIVE WAYS TO FRIDAY -- "We tried five ways to Friday to take it from different angles," juror Meg Crane said. "To work it through. And, and that was it. We were ... we just could not have done anything else." From "Stewart's demise was in the details/ Jurors didn't believe bad-memory defense," Associated Press, New York.

: : Ms. Crane must be a phrase fan. During a Dateline television interview, she (politely) corrected a fellow jury who was erroneously attributing the "tangled web" quote to Shakespeare.
: the tangled web reminded me of the "oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we learn to decieve" Who said that and do I have it all correct?
Oh, what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!
(Sir Walter Scott, Marmion 1808)
