The Phil Spector Trial: We Watch Court TV So You Don't Have To (05/30)

May 30, 2007 1:04 PM ET

What Happened Yesterday: Dr. Louis Pena, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Lana Clarkson, testified, making jurors gag (really) with step-by-step desciption of how he extracted Clarkson's bullet-grazed tongue from her mouth. He then explained why, in his opinion, the gun was shoved into Clarkson's mouth in a violent way; described resistance bruises on Clarkson's forearms and wrists; and testified that the gun in question had been wiped clean.

Is This Good or Bad for Phil? Bad. Dr. Pen's testimony makes it hard for the jury to buy Clarkson's death as a suicide

Hair and Wardrobe Update: Phil was dressed in a funereal black ensemble, which brought out the fluorescent glow in his blonde pageboy.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
