Prop. 8's opponents sought to illustrate that hostility with their pretrial deposition of William Tam, a San Francisco chemical engineer and activist who was one of the ballot measure's official proponents.
Tam, who organized rallies and raised money for the measure, sent a letter to Prop. 8 supporters during the campaign warning that if same-sex marriage remained legal, "other states would fall into Satan's hand."
San Francisco's government, already "under the rule of homosexuals," would move next to legalize sex with children and prostitution, Tam said.
In his deposition, Tam said he was also concerned that "every child can grow up thinking whether he would marry John or Jane."
Thompson argued that Tam had been speaking only for himself, and noted that Tam has asked Walker to remove him as an official proponent of Prop. 8.
Tam told the judge that his property had been vandalized during the campaign and that he feared further harassment. Walker has not ruled on the request.

If there's one element that sets the tone in a film is the music. Upon the final scene and end credits of the 2009 remake of Wes Craven's 1971 cult classic Last House On The Left, this creepy tune is played.
I swear, every time I hear it I get the chills.
What's funny, is that this song was also featured in the previews of the 2006 film The Black Dahlia.

The first time I watched this film was in late 2007 and I thought it was cleverly photographed, visually disturbing, brutally honest, and an unsettling ending. This is the kind of film that everyone dealing with a loved one that is a substance abuser needs to see.
Darren Aronofsky's story of 4 people and their downward spiral into drug addiction really hit me the second time around I watched this film on blu-ray disk. Jarod Leto, Jennifer Connelly, & Marlon Wayans were brilliant, but I felt NO sympathy whatsoever for the choices their characters made or the end result of their actions. They deserved what they got.
However, Ellen Burstyn's magnificent performance of Sara Goldfarb's loneliness, despair, and self-destruction was absolutely heartbreaking to watch. To see her "broken, a shell of who she once was" towards the end of the film left me in tears.
