After the U.S. Supreme Court blocked a video feed and YouTube uploads of the Federal Prop 8 trial, one Los Angeles man has found a way around it. "Freelance journalist and filmmaker John Ireland, who's based in Los Angeles and regularly examines gay rights issues, will produce a daily re-enactment of the Proposition 8 federal trial and post it on YouTube, starting this week," reported the LA Weekly over the weekend. "The U.S. Supreme Court probably never saw this coming," noted Queer Town writer Patrick Range McDonald.
