What bloggers are saying about the first day of testimony.

R. Kelly arrives at court Tuesday morning (AP)

Court is done for the day after a dramatic few hours of testimony.

Most reporters in the courtroom thought defense attorney Sam Adam Jnr. had the better of prosecutor Shauna Boliker in the opening arguments. But VH1's resident expert, California-based attorney Mark Muro, thinks the defense boobed.

He thinks Kelly's lawyers need a snappy rhyme like "If it does not fit, you must acquit," to sell their mole defense.

He suggests, “With no mole on the back, the prosecution’s case must crack” or “No mole on the back, the case is whack.”

We're betting Sam Adam Jnr. comes up with something better.

But opinionated black woman woman thinks that holes in the case are visible from a distance.

Hitsville has been following the case closely, and he's upset with the New York Times coverage of Kelly.

MTV has a handy guide to the jurors, if they were played by movie stars in a film-of-the-trial.

And Blender has been giving the oxygen of publicity to Kelly's biggest fans.

No matter what race you are depending on the crime it pays
to have big money. It is so obvious that the victim has already
been paid off. In this country the legal system is like day light and darkness between those who have big cash and those who dont.
Those who have the cash, no matter what the charge is can buy themselves a few years of free time before trial. The no money or low money people dont get anytime between freedom and jail.In some cases low money goes to jail even when they are inocent of the crime. R Kelly took that wiz on that girl and she has been compensated for it in cash. I wonder how much she got?
