A woman is found dead on the floor of her house near her baby's cradle. The gun in her hand, as well as a suicide note and a fridge-full of breast milk, suggest that it was a suicide. The lack of blood on her hand, however, indicates that she was murdered. During autopsy, it is revealed that her hymen is still intact; she is still a virgin despite having given birth to a son. Meanwhile, Grissom is called in by Ecklie to refute an experiment involving insects which were used to create a time-line for a murder case. Written by Ploy P.

Another Episode Marred By Liberal Bias
5 March 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

A 28-year-old single mom is found lying dead in her living room. Her visiting sister from Los Angeles spots her through the window, after she didn't answer the door. A little baby in a nearby crib looks on anxiously. In the dead woman's hand is a gun and nearby is a suicide note. Investigators Catherine and Sara quickly see, however, things may not be how they seem. Why is the gun covered in blood but not the woman's hands? Now it looks like murder, with someone planting that gun and suicide note.

It turns out to be another deal that involves a lot of twists such as surrogate mothers, and more blatant cheap shots against believers in God, showing a nasty woman believer in God as someone who is against abortion (unbelievable, how unrelenting and heavy-handed these Liberal Hollywood writers are in TV and film) and a CSI member giving her left wing slant - here, it's Marg Helgenberger. If there was any question, about five minutes later in the show she tells Gil "I am pro-choice."

Why is it not one of the "good guys" in these TV shows - CSI or anything else - ever says they are "pro life" or is anything other than liberal?

Meanwhile, Gil gets called off the case to match wits in court with another bug expert, a man working for prosecution trying to get a guilty man off the hook. Gil and this adversary have a not-so-pleasant history so part of this battle is personal.
