About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

So the Rittenhouse jury is watching the video.

Did the judge rule on the motion to dismiss? How did the two videos issue get resolved?

Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter - Herman's Hermits

I see there's still a live feed going of the Rittenhouse trial

Up on youtube. It just shows the seal. Everybody is off screen, drinking coffee and worrying, waiting for a note from the jury. Usually there will be a few questions. Lawyers try to figure out what's going on from the questions.

Question about Rittenhouse jury instructions.

Did the judge say the defendant has the burden of proof on the issue of self defense? Or did he say that it was the state's burden to disprove self defense beyond a reasonable doubt?
Always kind of wonder what a jury makes of that big pile of law being dumped on them at the end.

Senator Leahy trivia I just read

He appeared in five of the Batman movies and has attended at least six Grateful Dead concerts.

I just read in Politico Playbook

That Patrick Leahy is the only Democratic Senator ever elected in the history of Vermont. Is that true? Am I reading that right?
Sounds like that has to be wrong. Vermonters?
