First of all it was a complete and total madhouse at the Civic Center this morning. My husband drove me through an obstacle course including part of the parade route on McAllister just to get to the courthouse (mind you, this was 8:15 a.m.), and then afterwards (at about 10:15) to get to the BART station I had to walk all the way around City Hall, up Van Ness, past the Bill Graham auditorium. Yeah, it was exciting.
This is a much better picture than the one I got on my phone. If you're not familiar with the area, that's the state building to the left where the Supreme Court is:
The sidewalk in front of the building was packed. As for the argument, it was not very heavily attended (hard to imagine why), but it was very interesting. I'll be typing up my report and posting it here later. For now I'll just say it's going to be a split decision.
