Cesare Previti is in prison !

Oh happy day.

For US readers this guy is way more corrupt than Abramoff, Wilkes and DeLay put together. The really important thing is that the legal system has survived 5 years of efforts to force it to submit to politics. More laws were changed in the effort to keep Previti out of prison than were changed to keep his friend (and unindicted co-conspirator in another crime) Silvio Berlusconi out of prison.

In fact, under one of those laws, which is in my view perfectly reasonable, his stay in prison will be brief, since he is over 70 and thus will be placed under house arrest.

He fought the law, and the law won. As I always root for the underdog I am
