The Trial

Hi, this is Bailey. Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday. It seems the lives of all of us bloggers are getting busier. Lately I've been running around bugging people for their posts. I've decided to relax about the matter. If a new post doesn't come in for the day, so be it. We'll post as often as we can.

The reason for the latest hubbub here (this is putting it very mildly) is--the trial's now underway. No doubt you've been reading about it in the papers. We've had over six months in Kanner Lake to try to settle after last summer's trauma, and we've managed to do that pretty well. But now everything's all stirred up again, with the trial and news people here from all over the country. I've been very busy at Java Joint, I can tell you. Lots of people coming in and out. It's been very interesting to meet the country's top reporters that I've seen on TV for so many years--from all major news stations. I just wish our meeting could be under different circumstances.

This trial--well, most of the town wishes it wasn't even taking place. All we can hope for now--pray for--is that it ends the way we'd like it to end. Sometime next week it should all be over. Sarah Wray is hanging in there, but she's on pins and needles every minute, worried about Paige. Of course Sarah's tending the shop by herself right now, but hoping for Paige's return. Simple Pleasures has had a booming business, too, with all our visitors.

To all you media folk who are now in Kanner Lake--we do hope you feel welcome. If anyone acts snippy to you or less than totally friendly, please do remember what a strain we are under. Seven months ago this was a little-known town, not used to publicity. Now, frankly, at times we can feel under siege. Everything will go back to normal in time, I know. But for now…things are a little hard. Hang in there with us. Okay?

Love to all of you out there, from all of us Scenes and Beans bloggers.

-- Bailey

I figured you all were a bit distracted. Know that your fans are thinking of you at this time.

I second that.

Even reading all the newspaper articles, which are supposed to be nonbiased (!), I can feel the general support for the defendant in this trial. The whole thing is just ... an amazing story. I know it doesn't feel like that to you who are caught up in it. But that is why the nation is so caught up in following its outcome.

Hang in there, all of you.

By the way, it would be great to hear some inside stories about all those news people...
