    When you have truck loads of cash, you always seem to be able to get away with murder. Isn't that nice.

    When your last name is Murdoch, apparently normal laws don't apply. Isn't that nice.

    Does this mean that Rupert won't have to go to jail and drop the soap in the shower in front of some guy named Rocco while the guards look the other way?

    @I wonder...
    Yep, that's exactly what that means.
    Rocco?
    That's different.
    It's usually Bubba that does that on these threads.
