All you want to know about the Prop 8 Trial (But were afraid to demand)

Today is the day that Perry V Shwarzenegger begins. AKA the Federal Prop 8 Trial.

The trial is not being broadcast on live TV. Instead, it will be uploaded to Youtube in bits and pieces after a delay. Here is the Youtube account--you really ought to subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/usdccand.

The schedule for the day is available at http://bit.ly/7nlxw1

Conservatives are already claiming the trial is unfair. Obviously they're already expecting to lose. Find out more at http://bit.ly/4wAKVC
