Blurb: Happy 4th of July.
Backstory: It's hard to appreciate holidays when you're working them but today I did get a small reminder of what this day is all about. Right now American Amanda Knox is going through the appeals process for her murder conviction in Italy. The trial has been very suspicious and Knox's parents weighed in with their feelings saying they didn't agree with the decisions that have been made so far.
Well now her parents are on trial for slander, speaking their minds about the decisions made against their daughter. I'm not here to pass judgement on innocents or guilt, but I'm very happy to say that we live in a country were we're allowed to say we think the court made a bad decision.
