    I said out, dammit!
    Which reminds me - There was a MASH ep where Hawkeye joked about mailing a B-52 home a part at a time. While the B-52 was in development during the Korean War, it wasn't fielded until 1955, and certainly wasn't used in Korea.

    Oh, that one's easy. Hawkeye figured he'd be there long enough for the B-52 to come out!

    Well, not really. Here's a jury instruction to show the point:

    Circumstantial evidence is legal and competent, and a person charged with a crime may be convicted upon circumstantial evidence alone, or upon circumstantial evidence connected with other evidence, if you believe beyond a reasonable doubt from such circumstantial evidence that the person so charged is guilty. You have the right to convict the defendant upon circumstantial evidence alone, or upon circumstantial evidence coupled with other evidence, if from all the evidence you believe that guilt of the defendant has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Back on topic:
    I'm fine with the show because it's a good drama. But the objections can be really butchered some times.

    Well, I think the defense side probably doesn't like Perry Mason so much because, 99.9999% of the time, their job isn't to solve a mystery. The jury's supposed to be listening to the evidence and deciding if it's enough to convict. They're not supposed to be mini-detectives trying to figure out a mystery.
