I don’t usually have the TV on while I work.
I work from home (you are in a way part of my office). When everyone is out of the house, I enjoy the peace and quiet of my home while I work. There is a certain high that I get from the last of many dryer buzzes and the smell of a clean house.
Things changed for me with the Casey Anthony trial.
It’s kind of like when the OJ trial aired- everyone tuned in. A bonanza for CNN for sure. At the time, we were fascinated by this football superstar’s fall and the details of his life. And, the drama around it…oye. There would be no Kardasian anything today had it not been for OJ!
I guess I was duped into curiosity with this Anthony thing after flipping through the channels (who watches commercials any more?) and stopping on an irate Nancy Grace defending this poor child- Calee- not Casey.
The truth is, that this trial could go on for a few more weeks. That’s like half the summer. Then they will either have a hung trial or find her guilty. If she is found guilty you can be assured of appeals and more time and money sucked into this nasty web of drama.
After getting tired of hearing all the ‘tot-mom’ bashing going on, I wondered if there really any remote possibility that tot-mom is innocent? Was she really a victim herself of what she is accusing her father and brother of?
What really makes me mad, is that since we all know she has a tendency to not tell the truth..ever… just putting out the molestation thing does an incredible injustice not only to the accused but, to those who are actually being tormented by molestation. This is a very serious thing not to be taken lightly as a possible motive that may not even occurred.
If tot-mom was truly never molested, the accusations of molestation can be viewed as a ‘crying wolf’ ploy to show a reasonable doubt issue. The danger in this of course, is that it lessens the severity of the heinous crime committed on many innocent children who really were or are molested. We tend to become more tolerable of things the more we hear about and see them.
