For the last three years I have been covering a government corruption investigation in Pennsylvania. So far, 25 people have been arrested in the scheme, one was acquitted and some of them may go to jail.
I ran into one of the defendants recently and made some small talk. I complimented him on his finely tailored suit. He responded: "I gotta wear it while I can. I won't be able to wear it much longer."
I was stunned. Was he saying he expected to be wearing a prison jumpsuit soon? I didn't know how to respond. I don't know if he realized what I was thinking when he added, "Pretty soon it will be too warm for wool."
