The Roger Clemens trial doesn’t really get going this week

This thing is gonna drag on forever, isn’t it?  Today the jury will be seated and opening arguments will happen. Then:

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton hopes to get to the first witness in the case. But it will be a short week for the trial. Walton will recess it at mid-day on Tuesday, and the trial will not resume until the following Monday.

All of this to judge statements from over four years ago about conduct from 15 years ago which harmed no one.

Swift justice, FTW.
