Today in the Bacchanal Box:
The overall atmosphere was more party-like again in the box today. I’m sure they get a kick out of imparting such a care-free attitude in the face of such a serious occasion. It IS entirely possible that they’re happy to finally be rid of ayres, something I had not considered until just recently.
Solvig: quiet, confused as ever.
Robert: still looking tired and drawn.
Creepy Guy: Still there, doing the robot walk. At the end of the day, he was overheard jauntily saying in a very loud voice: “Well what’s up for tonight? Dinner and late-night dancing?”
Awesome! I LOVE these people.
Granola Chick 1and
Granola Chick 2: Still there.
Granola Crowd: Several other Berkeley-looking sorts there today, with frumpy clothes and pagan beaded necklaces and bracelets. In my head, I picture these people to be shrinks who have typically eschewed any common sensibility.
Biker Hippy Mom and Daughter: Biker Hippy Mom dressing better yet. Must have gone shopping. Biker Hippy Daughter must have topped out on Thursday. Hint: Sleeves
Painter Guy: Some guy was there with paint all over his shoes, and pants, flannel shirt. Very outspoken in support of ayres, shook his hand, wished him luck, advised Weinberg on his case, It all seemed a bit overacted and frankly he looked to be in quite a bit of pain. Looked to be somewhere within the range of the many out-of-statute victims that have come forward.
Notably Missing: Etta Bryant. We keep hoping she’s getting the message that her support is damaging to ayres’ victims, and as a psychiatric professional she shouldn’t be doing that, but at this point, we’ve decided that her skull is too thick to allow rational thought to penetrate.
Apparently some of the really granola looking crowd were ACTUALLY Weinberg's mommy and possibly sister, who came to either fake the jury into thinking that there are people who like to hang out with ayres, or to bring Doron some milk and cookies for the break time, so he didn't have to wait on the elevator to go to the break room. Or something. Maybe she had his tutu dry cleaned and was bringing it to him.
