Oh what a tangled webcam Maggie will weave

by Jeremy Hooper

Once the Prop 8 trial gets back underway today, our old country line dance partner Maggie Gallagher is apparently going to be speaking live to this camera. Or something:


Live Videos by Ustream

**UPDATE: Maggie plans for using this webcam thingie:

"When arguments finish, sometime around 7pm ET / 4pm PT, I’ll be online with live streaming video to give some immediate reaction to the day’s arguments."

So that should be fun.
