My Spector Trial Synopsis on Sprocket's Blog

Round about mid-September I started to respond to a post on the Court TV Message Boards in the Phil Spector Forum to try to explain why so many of us were seemingly obsessed by the Phil Spector Murder Trial. It just started POURING out of me and I realized that it would be much more than a mere response to a post. It was really quite cathartic to get it all out. It was also quite entertaining in many parts! So I gave it its own thread (broken into six parts). It was well-received, but little read since most people were concentrating on the main daily threads, which were racing along fast and furiously at about 2000 posts/day.

A few days later, Sprocket asked if she could post it on her own blog, Trials & Tribulations. I was THRILLED for the opportunity! Sprocket had been attending the trial on a near-daily basis since the beginning and blogging about it. She had befriended quite a few members of the press (especially Dominick Dunne, with whom she sat during most of the trial).

Between the two of us we cleaned it up (hey, I originally posted it in the wee hours of the morning, having put several hours into it at that point) and she posted This Trial Has Everything! on September 20, 2007. It's not only fun to reread, but it can also be something of a springboard for new discussions on how things might be done differently in the second trial.
