A jury found Martha Stewart guilty of hampering a stock fraud investigation. I hope the company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, survives. I suppose I'm not the ordinary American, who associates the company's brand with the living person. Somehow, I've always had the impression that Martha was not a pleasant woman. And I've always found her presence to be her television show's biggest detractor. But I've always liked her product, and the ideas of the people she assembled at her company. Presentation with style, flair, and not necessarily with a lot of money -- Martha Stewart's ideas preceeded Target's idea that just because something is cheap, it doesn't mean it can't be chic.
