Murray Waas picked up this story from the Washington Post on January, 17th:

"Another [potential juror], the former Post journalist, seemed to have a link to nearly every key player in the case. He had worked in the newspaper's Metro section, he said, where his editor was Woodward, a key defense witness. Until recently, he lived across an alley from Russert, a star witness for the prosecution. And he had gone to parties with The Post's Walter Pincus, another defense witness."

And now it seems he made the grade and is in the jury...

Asked about possible testimony by Post editor Bob Woodward, the man said, `I would say the one thing that he drilled into all of us was, don't take anybody's word for anything until you get the facts. I'd find it shameful to overweigh anything.''

I can see it now....As Woodward takes the stand....the mystery juror waves to him, "Hi Bob, how are you?" Libby’s lawyer, Theodore V. Wells jumps up and yells:...You're out of order! You're out of order! "This whole trial is out of order!" They're out of order!

Will we have a few Pacino moments in the next few weeks? We can only hope....
