Has it ever occurred to you why - in the UK at least, does this happen elsewhere? - photography is not permitted inside a courtroom? The court is supposed to be a theatre for the production of truth, or rather, a theatre for the approximation of the production of truth (or is it a theatre for the production of approximate truth?). Why then do we only get to see sketches (approximate truth) and not photography (approximately the truth)? Is this a slight on the competency of sketch-makers? Or is photography too much truth, or perhaps too much in the direction of the appearance of truth?
