Do you think Martha Stewart is guilty?

Yes. Although I also think it's funny that we have laws against communication.

Probably guilty, but find it amazing that the men of Enron who bilked millions of dollars have barely garned a sliver of the press Martha has. Something about a successful, aggressive and hardnosed woman engenders such hostility in the general public. I'm convinced has she been male, we would never have heard about this.

I think she is guilty. But I also believe that she did the same thing I would have done if someone gave me the same information. I would have sold me stock. I don't believe she needs to go to jail. The CEOs of ENRON and World Com deserve to go to jail. They ruined thousands of people retirement and jobs.

Martha Steward is guilty of success, arrogance and inept lies.

I really don't care........(sorry)


Sure she is. But I wish this much attention was going to the crooks at Enron and WorldComm.

I'm sure she's guilty of something. It seems unfair to penalize someone for acting on
something they can't necessarily help knowing. I don't think anyone has said that Martha Stewart asked for the information that led her to trade. So, if she found out accidentally that something was going to happen, wouldn't she be a fool not to do something to protect herself from a great loss? Wouldn't anybody who had information of the nature she supposedly received act to protect himself/herself? I'm not saying the little guy should be penalized for
rich people knowing each other, but it's not like the big guys aren't human too.

I don't know whether she is technically guilty. I firmly believe that had she been an equally successful male, she would not have been prosecuted with such vigor.

That is for God to judge, not me. And honestly, I don't even know what she was charged with.
