“The marathon that screamed, “Hey guys why don’t you blog?!” Some great discussions took place in the carpeted walls of the MRC.  We learned that we can give movies, we would not normally watch, a chance. Justice and Kramer were big surprises and Paul Newman… well no words can describe his performance. Maybe someday we will review these for this blog but for now thank you Courtroom Dramathon!”
