If you live in the United States, chances are you know who Casey Anthony is. Just in case you don't know, she is accused of murdering her two year old daughter, Caylee, in 2008. (For all of the details, you can check out Orlando's local news station, CFNews13.)
This case is HUGE here in Orlando, since this is where it all happened. I will admit that I am intrigued by this case, even though it has already gone on way too long, and the trial hasn't even started yet. They are in their second week of jury selection, and they still haven't picked the jury. The jury selection, by the way, is happening in Clearwater. Can you imagine the disruption that is going to take place in the lives of the jurors? Some may be happy about their "vacation" in Orlando, but I wouldn't be. No way.
I won't be watching every minute of the trial, but I will keep up to date on it. I, personally, think she is guilty and I hope the jury convicts her. I can't imagine hurting my babies. How can anyone commit such a heinous act????
Anyway, this case has been a media frenzy since the beginning. I have the local news on every morning while I'm getting ready for work, and in the past three years, I don't recall many days that I didn't hear the name Casey Anthony. The news on most days is very informative and interesting, but some days, it just gets ridiculous. For instance, last week we found out all about Casey's jail stay in Pinellas County. We now know what her cell is like, her meal times, and even what she is eating while she is there. This isn't news. What, did they just run out of things to talk about, so they fill the "Casey Anthony slot" with fluff?
What's your take? Do these details really matter? Do YOU care what Casey eats every day? Also, I would love to know your opinion on Casey's guilt.
