    Reading these comments, what suprises me the most is how many people are happy about this news. Personnally I can't say that I like her or that I dislike her but let's say for arguments sake that I disliked her......why would I wish for her something like spending a long time in jail in a foreign country? would that change anything in MY life? would that change anything in YOUR life? why are so many people so mean just for the sake of being mean? I can't help but wonder what age group we're dealing with here?
