I view Martha Stewart in a larger context. True, others have committed much more egregious crimes. However, it is the mindset of the "Martha Stewarts" of this world that ultimately created the Enrons, WorldComs, et al.

This issue is one of culture and the fact that the rich and powerful believe they are not obligated to abide by the rules. Putting Martha in jail hopefully sends a message that the rules apply to everyone. One can only hope it serves to move the culture of corporate America a little closer to where it needs to be in order to sustain long-term success.

That, and she's simply not a nice person and deserves to be put in her place.
