Starshine and Sarah

Starshine’s column on jury duty was, as always, entertaining. However, I must take exception to her cheap shot regarding Sarah Palin. I realize that she and Sarah have very different political views. However, they really have quite a bit in common. They are both bright, attractive women that have made it in a “man’s world.” They have great senses of humor and deep love for their families. So, to equate Ms. Palin with a rectal exam is beneath Ms. Roshell. Definitely a cheap shot.
