    I cant wait to hear the conclusion, I have been waiting for months. My school paper was on proposition 8, and their FOREIGN contributors, surprisingly. Manchurian Styled government is scary…..a near real

    Conclusion won’t be for another week to a month. Closing arguments were great though. Really highlighted the weakness of the defendant’s case.
