Gu Kailai verdict scheduled for August 20th; my op-ed

The Hefei Intermediate People's Court will announce the verdict in the Gu Kailai trial at 9 a.m. (local time) on August 20th.

In the meantime, here's an op-ed on the trial that I've published on CNN's site. Please note that it does not even attempt to deal with the problems in the official narrative, and I take no responsibility for the title. Contrary to what some of the commentators seem to think, it's not an argument that Gu has been railroaded.

At least before the verdict date, there is still suspense and people can still cast bets.
