Blagojevich Trial: The Tragedy of Macbeth: SCENE V. Dunsinane. "Full of Sound and Fury"

"The prosecution of Rod Blagojevich is “a tale of sound and fury, signifying nothing,” a lawyer for the former governor told the jury during opening statements at his retrial, quoting Shakespeare and touching on a key theme for the defense."

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Enter a Messenger
Thou comest to use thy tongue; thy story quickly.
