Will Martha do the perp…

Will Martha do the perp walk?

Well, it appears reasonable that Martha Stewart may not have been completely forthcoming to federal investigations questioning her about possible insider trading on ImClone stock.

Let’s say it’s true. Still, I can’t quite shake the thought that she is being pilloried (and she is) because of a public perception that she is arrogant, haughty, long overdue for a fall – and because she’s a woman.  That’s right, were she a man, I doubt everyone would be as vindictive towards her as they are now.  Shades of Leona Helmsley.  Another haughty woman, no doubt guilty, who got caught in a media barrage.  She went to prison.  Will Martha?
