Trial (ours) and error (theirs)

by Jeremy Hooper

Monday was quite the interesting day at the Prop 8 trial, with the opposition's "expert witness," Professor Kenneth Miller, basically admitting that LGBT people are discriminated against in this country. And at other times, he seemed like he was more of a student getting a lesson from David Boies on the nature of prejudice in America than a key defendant of marriage bias. For the defense it was yet another "With friends like these..." kind of day, right up there with the Nathanson/Young videos and the Dr. "gay = pedophilia/prostitution" Tam testimony.

But don't take our word for it. Here's the official transcript from the defense's DeFAIL:
