The Court:  Mr. Misskelley, I need to ask you some questions.  First of all, today is Wednesday, the 26th, and we are ready to proceed to jury trial and as soon as we go out there, the clerk will swear in the jury.  Do you understand that?

The Defendant:  Um, tell the truth?  Is that what you mean?

The Court:  No, I'm asking you do you understand that we are about to start your trial?
