You have words - now what do you do with them?
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).
