    There are a lot of people I know whose handwriting I just cannot read. Including my daughters. One of my daughters had to deal with losing points at school because nobody could read what she wrote. She is brilliant.

    Did you see the police officer on the stand trying to read Zimmerman's handwritten statement? She had some difficulty.

        job of making that known.
        They said it during her testimony but it wasn't emphasized.
