There seem to be many more shots of Amanda Knox talking with Mr Della Vedova (seen above) than with her other lawyer Mr Girgha.

We have one report from someone who knows him that he is a nice caring guy. Criminal law was not previously his particular field, but he seems to be trying, given what he has to work with, whereas we had one report that Mr Ghirga seemed bored.

Possibly Mr Della Vedova is the most useful person to her own interests that Knox has around her right now. It looks like he is giving it to her straight.

Seemingly A More Serious And Somber Defendant In Court Today

It may be that she, at least, is getting feedback from the lawyers about the effect of the whole family’s excessive informality has on the jury.

It may also be a little thin edge of reality getting through the arrogance: the dropped witnesses, her continuing lack of an alibi, the lack of impact of the defense tactics.

That kind of thing.  She’s sitting there everyday listening.

Maybe it’s beginning to sink in for her that this isn’t like snowing her mom with a flurry of lies, that maybe she could lose.

Perhaps someone has also mentioned to her that, since she seems to like taking showers frequently, it should appear as if she washes her hair with some regularity, too.

I must be the only one who thinks “Foxy Knoxy” is not anything of the sort.  She looks like a below average American girl.  On the other hand it is Meredith who I think is, was, and always will be the beautiful one.
