Equality On Trial

What do you do when there is a highly significant US Supreme Court trial whose videotaping for delayed broadcast has been blocked? You take the publicly available transcripts and you turn them into street theatre, that's what. Then you video them and upload them to a central site. What a great idea.

The Equality On Trial blog has some interesting reports. Take this one, for example. It's wonderful to think that for every Tim Wildmon preaching hatred in the name of "family values" there are likely to be hundreds of American kids who are being brought up to think for themselves and to campaign positively for those things in the Constitution and the pledge of allegiance to which so many simply pay lip service. On the whole the story leaves me feeling hopeful rather than despondent about the USA.
