Martha Stewart was just on the Today show to educate us all on the art of decorating plant pots; before the arts and crafts, however, Ann Curry couldn't resist showing off her hard-nosed newswench skills. Just as Stewart opened her mouth to begin lecturing on terra cotta, Curry interrupted to ask about the state of the civil suit Stewart is currently facing from the Securities and Exchanges Commission. While Stewart looked none too pleased to have her domestic lesson interrupted, she did indulge: contrary to every published report we've seen, Stewart is not fighting the second round of insider trading charges. "We're close to a happy settlement," she said. How nice to see a negotiation so full of mirth.
