I read Boies's cross examination of David Blankenhorn. It was a work of art. I hope someday the video of it will be released. Really, it was brilliant. I have seen Blankenhorn at conferences and he can be aggressively hostile to anyone who disagrees with his ideas about marriage and fatherhood. He could not get away with that on the stand. Boies speaks in this video as though his crosse examination was so simple, but it was his technique as well as the content of his questions that made it so effective.
Nice interview--serious with a little humor but linear and logical. I always will be an effective argument with any rational person who does not suffer from the religious delusions. It's a shame the trial was not broadcast. Let's hope this video is broadly viewed.
