For sale?Here's what Chief Assistant District Attorney Michael P. McDermott had to say after yesterday's session at the Porco trial:
There's more than one way to skin a cat, and we'll keep trying to skin this cat until the cat gets skinned.
I've been wondering what will become of a certain yellow Jeep in case McDermott is successful in his cat skinning. Christopher Porco's distinctive vehicle has loomed large during the trial; as jurors hear testimony about it and see surveillance pictures showing it, the Jeep sits parked outside the courtroom. Several reporters have noted that Porco chauffeurs his mother around Goshen in the Wrangler, which he allegedly bought by forging his father's signature on a $16450 loan.

Anyway, just in case Porco is no longer allowed to drive the Jeep when the trial is over, I might be interested in making an offer on it. I'd even be willing to go down there and pick it up. It may not be the white Ford Bronco, but around here, that's about as good as it gets.
