Y'know...I work with some folks who are REALLY good at raising BP. I could send 'em your way.

I have a few of those too, Alix. Will have to tell them that Missoula is lovely this time of year!

They typically work with younger folks than you do, but I'm sure they can adapt.

Twice now they have had to reduce my BP meds. And I still think it is too much. Everytime I get my BP checked, it takes two or three nurses to try and find it. And when they do, they have to check it again and again. They can't believe how low it is. Maybe I should start making friends with my salt shaker.

one of our local police officers shot and killed a woman last year, after she tried to drive away to avoid giving over her driver's license. today, a jury found him guilty of willful manslaughter. now, just hours later, the verdict may be overturned because the jury used a dictionary to look up the meanings of the words 'malicious' and 'willful'. the reason given is that the jury disregarded orders for deliberations, directing them to use only the judge's explicit instructions.
does this sound like a legitimate reason for striking down the jury's verdict? it doesn't to me....

Yes. No jury is allowed to use outside influences such as newspapers, TV reports or printed matter in a book. That is why the judge gives them explicit orders on what they are to deliberate about and the charges they must consider. They should have ask the judge for the meanings if they were unsure.

apparently, the jury had asked for further clarification on a number of points earlier from the judge, and had been referred back to resume their deliberations. it is unclear whether the jury was aware that their actions were strictly forbidden. the final decision rests with the presiding judge, and he is considering the matter.
