Sue's questions and concerns mirrored to a large extent, I
believe, those of others on this list.

Anyone familiar with the concept of a "mock" trial, understands
full well that the facts are "canned" and that evidentiary
niceties which ensure the competency of the witnesses, relevancy,
materiality of the testimony, and the indicia of reliability of
any hearsay, are often informalized to the point where a
conclusion is foregone.

Your response to Sue indicates that her concerns were
well-founded. Snide ad hominem is a poor substitute for
responsive facts and substance.
