Comment is Free: Will community service hurt Silvio Berlusconi's image more than prison?

I have a piece on the Guardian website today looking at celebrities and community service, occasioned be the sentence given to Silvio Berlusconi:
He will be working with elderly patients, among whom a classic test for judging confusion is to ask who the prime minister is. Unless the doctor is well briefed, answering "The last time I took an interest, it was that guy mopping the floor" could lead to misdiagnosis.
