Well, hello, Martha.

Welcome home, Martha.

It's so nice to have you back where you belong.

Complete Trial Background

You're looking swell, Martha.

You've been through hell, Martha.

You're still glowin', you're still crowin',

And still coming on strong.

We hear the money tinkle,

We see the profits twinkle.

One of our favorite stocks from way back when . . .

Wow, wow, wow, Martha, never go away again.

Martha Stewart paid her dues and is home (or at least serving the rest of her sentence there).

The world is a better place now that Martha once again can go about her business and tell the rest of us how to mind ours.

It goes without saying that there will now be thousands -- no, millions -- of jokes about her on the Internet, in beauty parlors and at office water coolers, not to mention from Jay Leno, David Letterman and "Saturday Night Live."
