Where do they come from?
Some are secret, some are not.
Bowers of flowers.
The many floral arrangements sent to Judge Ito’s courtroom cause great speculation. I either wasn’t curious enough to see who they were from to ask or check for tags on them, or chose not to know so I could truthfully tell inquiring reporters and producers I didn’t know, or just plain didn’t have time to be bothered, I don’t know. But the fact is, I didn’t know.
What I did know nearly a year later was who sent a huge bouquet to me at my court office and how shocked I was. I’m still not over it. I wrote a haiku about it on that day, September 18, 1995. Watch this space for it on September 18, 2015.
