4. Our local news (in NC)
says that Martha and our former state Sec'y of Agriculture, Meg Scott Phipps, who went to Fed Prison for campaign violations became good friends and Phipps threw Martha a 'going-away party' at the prison.

"On Tuesday night, Mrs. Phipps hosted a pot-luck dinner party to celebrate Ms. Stewart's impending release. Inmates are allowed to make dishes that can be prepared in a microwave or a refrigerator. Mrs. Phipps made a pineapple cheese cake.
"She's fit in very well here," Mrs. Phipps says."

10. WOW I am able to see MSNBC!
I have the $13 cable and can't get any of the news networks, but I did a little fidgeting and I can get MSNBC and now I can't wait for Martha to come out of that damn prison! YAY!

11. It's pretty funny.
I'm watching it on MSNBC.

Everybody with their cameras trained on the front gate of the prison.

14. I was thinking the same thing....
...a bunch of Republican pukes trying to set the stage as to what is acceptable and not acceptable for Martha to say. I hope that Martha says F**k them all.

18. She was screwed over while Ken Lay goes free still.
She stepped up to the plate and asked to go ahead and do her time.

I admire her now, and I never really did before.

19. She's a good Democrat...
so is her daughter, Alexis. We don't have that many super-wealthy friends - we should support her!

21. Well, there it was! Martha waved at the crowd
before she got on the plane.

She looked happy to be boarding that plane!

22. Yes she did...
I can't believe she's not allowed to drink while on home arrest!

Well, it's over. Free at last, free at last, Martha is free at last!

23. Gawd, I hate that bitch.
I don't care if she is a Democrat or not, she's a vicious, self-serving battle ax IMO.

to have formed these vehement opinions of her.

26. No, but her reputation precedes her.
My best friend's dad had the misfortune of working with her on several occasions and he reported that she never missed an opportunity to berate her staff or bitch at the people arranging the events. Hopefully prison taught her a lesson or two.

27. Sounds exactly like the guy I work for, but everyone just says he's tough
and a perfectionist, and he likes to have things done just right.

Maybe this whole time he's been a bitch and a battle-ax and I didn't know it.

28. Bravo! Guess you kicked his chauvinism good!
I'm also quite tired of hearing that same-old, double-standard male intolerance of strong "opinionated women" (as Teresa Heinz-Kerry would say)!

25. I used to think the same thing...
...and in real life, she may still be that way. But its the symbol, man, we need some symbols. We need to be able to exploit symbols. The Republicans do it everyday, on a 24/7 basis, and they're killing us with their symbols.

30. Yay for Martha--what's most inspiring is that smile, like she has used
this experience and become stronger. At least her face just looks honest and open and glowing in a way I had never seen on her before. I didn't think about her much before, except that I wished I could get myself organized and creative like she does! LOL. But now I see something much more. Hope she can really run with it now, it could really help us all.

:hi: Martha! Boo-Yah! (lolol I've always wanted to say that...boo-yah!! )
