Did you understand what this means: No, this doesn’t exactly matter. But did you understand the following passage?
It comes from yesterday’s New York Times—from a news report about the charges which have been brought against George Zimmerman. Do you understand what this says?
SCHWARTZ (4/12/12): The charge of second-degree murder also means that Mr. Zimmerman will not be entitled to be released on bail before his trial. Instead, his lawyer will be able to ask for what Florida calls an Arthur hearing, which can take place weeks after the arrest, to determine whether he should be allowed to post bond.He can’t get bail—but he might post bond! Do you have any idea what that means?
No, it doesn’t exactly matter. But for ourselves, we’ll admit we do not.
