Most of the muddle, perplexity and aggravation re: the Ghomeshi trial and its witnesses this week -- Why did she see him again after he choked her? Why did she say the brute was "magic"? -- could have been avoided if this were happening in a novel or film instead of a courtroom. Courts are terrible venues for illuminating human behaviour, if that's what you happen to be looking for.
