Today was not the bloodbath for ayres that yesterday was. I don't know if I'd call it a bad day for the prosecution, but it was definitely neutral-ish at best.
The defense has spent the last day ramping up ayres' "memory problem" which was almost flawless, until the very moment that the cross examination began, and then for a brief moment in the later afternoon, when the stars must have come into alignment, and his memory was improved a bit, co-incidentally, it was at about the same time that the re-direct from the defense took place.
