We use similes to show
things are connected –

and they are,
just not in the way we say.

If you ain’t losing, you’re winning.

That’s something I’ve always believed, as a criminal defense lawyer, and it’s something that may be going through the mind of this guy, whose federal trial in Tampa, on drug charges, recently ended in a hung jury and mistrial.

He’d been charged with trying to buy five kilos of cocaine. The defense, apparently, was that he’d been set up (or, in legal parlance, entrapped). A retrial is expected soon.

Bob Marley’s son, Stephen, appearing as a character witness, called him the “voice of the people”—the “voice of Jamaica.”
