    Ghomeshi Trial

    Anyone else following the trial in the papers?

    I'm quite surprised by how well his defense is going. I thought it would be slam dunk for the prosecution.

    I can't think of anything witty to say for my signature line.

    This is the first I've heard of it (probably because it's a Canadian case)

    Sounds like an interesting case. How do you think it's going to go?

    I've been following the case by way of television and internet. As it stands, I'm rooting for JG and his team. (Verdict in Ghomeshi trial set for March 24).

    I haven't been following it besides reading the headlines in the lunch room. I think it's pretty obvious that he's guilty but so few of the more recent cases agreed to come forward (and after this trial it's obvious why). I can't bear to watch these women get abused again by him.

    That being said I'm not taking him off my MP3 player

    Not following closely, just the summaries and headlines. I think he's guilty of some kinky shit, which is not a crime. Guilty of non-consensual kinky shit? I don't believe the complainants have demonstrated that beyond a reasonable doubt, no, not with all the outright lies, omissions and collusion that's been evidenced.

    There are light years between "I never had contact with him again" and handwriting a sexy love letter the next day. Like, fuck.

    Well said, Mamapalooza! My sentiment exactly.

    Having not read a ton or paid much attention to what has transpired, this is sort of where I'm sitting for the time being.

    I'm here. And yeah, he was darn good at what he did working in media, so I still listen to old Q stuff.

    I second that! I lost all interest in continuing listening to Q, after JG was replaced.
