  1. Hello, Jane! Theresa Bassett here! If possible (I don’t know your connection), please pass on to April and Jayne that they have the support of so many….many that they have never crossed paths with. It is never fun to be under the magnifying class and even less fun to receive criticism or worse yet, rants from less than compassionate people. I think of April and Jayne daily, wish them and their children the best. -Theresa


  2. I just read the whole trial on your blog. It was the best coverage I have found to date of this trial. Thanks so much for your hard work. As the attorney from prop 8 case said (Bloise I think is his name?) that testifying is a lonely place and that their lies melt away on the stand. Thanks again, great read
