    If someone on the stand doesn't answer yes or no to a question (or plead the 5th) the unanswered question is an admission.  It would be interesting to know what the caselaw showed when this happened before Miranda.  Obviously, being arrested by cops is different than the rules in a trial.

    Shine like the humblest star.
