    a smart man.  A very smart man.

    This is a game for keeps- finishing off DeLay and (more importantly, really) all he stands for literally and figuratively, which is quite a bit of Texas history and its Establishment.  When he falls or hangs an awful lot does so with him in short order.

    I think that's how Priest is playing this, aware of what this trial represents.  No unambiguous charges, the outcome is either acquittal and Sheriff Earle biting the dust in the firefight that follows- or conviction and Wild Tom DeLay getting hung high and a posse shooting down his gang.

    Renewal, not mere Reform.
