So Conrad Black is guilty of fraud etc but not racketeering etc. I met the man three times and never found him anything less than weird. On each occasion he had some specific agenda - porn, opera and how well the French speak French (really) - which he pursued irrespective of what anybody else said. Perhaps he did this because he found me weird and/or boring. You never know and, given that the charges of which he has been found guilty could carry a sentence of up to 35 years, now I never will.
