She Stoops To Conquer

Imelda Marcos was acquitted last week of stealing $200 million from the Philippine treasury and investing it in the United States. Jurors were confused about why she was tried here for allegedly stealing there. The "world-class shopper" was so relieved she walked down the aisle of St. Patrick's Cathedral on her knees, a Philippine custom. The gesture was spiritual and practical: she thanked God, and saved her shoe leather.
