I think this supermarket quote works in translation as well:

Please have a look at our packaged meat counter.

Not exactly the stuff I'd want to use for making a counter. :wink:
The neighbors said that they knew the man who'd been shot for years.

Recently, a local (loco) news channel was comenting on the new verdict of the Andrea Yates murder case. The reporter told me that the jury had anonymously found her guilty. Now, I have never served on a jury or sat through a murder trial, but I thought the jury was to unanimously find someone guilty. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I though we, as U.S. citizens, had the right to see the jury of our peers, who was to deciding our fate. Is there such a thing as an anonymous jury here in America? :?

Well if the jury was anonymous, it is to be lauded. Lately it seems to be part and parcel of big trials for the jurers to achieve a fair amount of fame (or infamy). :shock:

No, no anonymous juries. We have pusillanimous, parsimonious, acrimonious, sanctimonious, and cantankerous juries, but not anonymous.
