Now that the weather in the Bay Area is so nice, why are people still sitting inside writing letters to the San Jose Mercury News?

Offshore justice

Scott Peterson's attorney, Mark Geragos, is dissatisfied with the jury pool in San Mateo County (Page 1B, March 10). Maybe the judge should follow the example of many of our tech companies and ``outsource'' the jury. The trial could be held in Redwood City or Modesto and beamed via closed circuit TV to a jury in India. With that country's large population, perhaps it could find 12 people who speak English and have never heard of Scott Peterson.

Maybe we could outsource the San Jose Mercury News letter page. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, Calvin Carter. It tolls for thee!
