While the press corps wait for the Jackson verdict - a wait made worse by the constant appearances of Jesse Jackson - attention is turned elsewhere: someone has spotted Jackson prosecution team out on the town:

"... including DA Tom Sneddon, Ron Zonen, Gordon Auchincloss, their wives and families, all celebrated a case they apparently feel they've won at the Hitching Post restaurant in Casmalia. "This group was happy," an observer remarked. "There was definitely a celebratory mood."

We're not an expert on California restuarants, but we don't think eating at The Hitching Post sounds like a major celebration - sure, it's not a Chuck E Cheese, but it doesn't really have the air of a Ritz, does it? That sounds more like a cautious end-of-term meal to us.
