MORE TO THE POINT, I WANT TO KEEP MY LUNCH DOWN

Judge Melville has slapped down an attempt by the prosecution in the Jackson trial to use a photo of Jacko's cock and a drawing done by the kid he paid off back in 1993. Melville, wincing slightly, said it was best left alone:

"I'm going to deny the request to bring in the evidence of the blemished penis," Melville said. "The prejudicial effect would far outweigh the probative value," he added alliteratively.

The prosecution will be allowed to show videotape of Gavin's interview with cops, in a bid to counter the defence claims that he changed his story; as a result, the defence has requested the right to requestion the kid and the attorney who first referred Gavin to a psychologist. The trial isn't done yet.
