Orlando, FL- I know I should really write in chronological order for y’all that are just reading the days events. I just can’t.
In the first day of the trial of the State of Florida v. Casey Anthony I went through a “Steel Magnolias” equivalent of tissues the first half, and proceeded to sharpen our Henkels in the afternoon for reasons I cannot explain.
Linda Drane Burdick, in her smart and gas-can-red suit, riveted the jurors, the public, and even the defendant, Casey Anthony.
Ms. Anthony shook her head no at all the places she does not want you to look. Ms. Anthony cried on cue.
Very upsetting this business of your daughter’s skull in a bog where you left it, with the intention of never seeing it again, and all the nastiness that comes with such an imposition.
In a most level and calculated fashion, Burdick took us through the timeline with resolve. While none of us ever really wanted to get to the “end”, we did, and she is right, there is no other that had access to the evidence in this case.
Asking this jury to find a verdict of guilty is going to be like asking who wants ice cream on the way back home.

That was just the start of the delusion for public consumption. If you did not raise your glass and look at the bottom in the light, you were not paying close enough attention. Am I really hearing this? Is there something in my water?
Kronk was kronked again, and accused of hiding Caylee’s remains from some unknown place, but ending up in the Suburban junkmess; and motivation for a reward as opposed to relieving himself was the reason he came upon her tiny skull.
Through her attorney, Casey Anthony did exactly what I have said she would do. She blamed George for not reporting Caylee’s death and Cindy for leaving the ladder up to the pool , and wept while Baez told us all that Casey was sexually abused from the age of 8.
Masterfully and Mercifully, Jeff Ashton laid down the hammer in response. George Anthony was called as the States first witness. (more…)
