We have a jury

But we don't know who they are.

Lawyers on both sides settled on 20 jurors to show up for tomorrow's opening statements.
But U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve hasn't released a list identifying the selected jurors -- either by name or by juror number. She may do so in the future. St. Eve has said she will immediately dismiss two of the alternates, leaving 18
for the duration of the trial. She apparently has the extra two as insurance in case someone doesn't show up. The trial is expected to take up to four months.
Jurors will be sworn in at 9 a.m. and opening statements will follow.
The openings are expected to be fairly brief -- each side has indicated they'll take about an hour.
St. Eve said the first witness could take the stand by lunch break.

isn't there enough room at the defense table for blago, save the taxpayers some money, try them both instead waiting for Rezko to get convicted and then flip on elvis, maybe we'll hear a rendition of jailhouse rock in the near future
