There is a ton of excellent work being doing in covering this trial. Here are a couple of quick hits.
- The LAist has the letter from Dr. William Tam, which was introduced today and whose incendiary deposition was aired in part during Dr. George Chauncey’s testimony. The pro-Prop 8 letter includes this lovely gem:
This November, San Francisco voters will vote on a ballot to “legalize prostitution”. This is put forth by the SF city government, which is under the rule of homosexuals. They lose no time in pushing the gay agenda — after legalizing same-sex marriage, they want to legalize prostitution. What will be next? On their agenda list is: legalize having sex with children. I hope we all wake up now and really work to pass Prop 8.
Tam was supposed to be an official Defendant-Intervenor in the case, but he withdrew right before it began.
- Karen Ocamb over at LGBT POV has coverage of last night’s AFER press conference.
- Adam B over at the big orange satan, eeer, I mean, Daily Kos has substantial quotes from both the majority opinion by SCOTUS and Breyer’s dissent.
- The crew over at Fire Dog Lake continued their excellent live blogging and reporting. The wonderful Marcy Wheeler has joined Teddy in SF, aiding with the liveblogging. Hopefully, we will see some analysis from her too.
And just a quick thanks to a few of the folks sending traffic our way today, too many really to mention all of you, which is just amazing: Andrew Sullivan, Margaret Talbot at the New Yorker, HRC Back Story, Dante Atkins at Daily Kos and the NYTimes.
