Apparently the South Carolina lawyers love rereuns of L&O:SVU as much as I do, but learn less from them. Last week they aired an episode featuring a husband who donated a kidney to his wife while he was awaiting trial for poisoning her. The time off for good deeds ploy didn't work, though, since you can't legally get anything of value for donating your organs.

Oh silly reader. That's just TV you're talking about. This is the real world! Things work different here...don't they? That's what it said on the news last night, anyway.
