Salivating

Is it just me, or is there something a little strange about the excitement over the Casey Anthony trial? I haven't seen it so much from other people, but definitely from the media, like Nancy Grace and Jane Valez Mitchell. We all know Nancy Grace is crazy, but Jane Valez Mitchell looks likes she's going to burst with excitement every time she talks about it. So yesterday was the last day of the defense's case, and of course Casey Anthony didn't testify. Anyone who thought she would is delusional. JVL just couldn't get this through her head though and looked like she was going to burst out of her skin. Lady. It's a murder trial. I get that it's your job to report it, but do you have to be so happy about it? A little girl is dead. Her mom is the accused killer. There is NOTHING good about any of this. I really hate 24 hour news sometimes, because it's nothing but hours and hours of time they have to fill up with the same words over and over and over again.

Have you been following the trial? What are your thoughts?

I've been following the Casey Anthony trial since the case first went national in 2008. I prayed everyday that maybe she was telling the truth and some crazy person did take off with her daughter, even though I knew deep down that it didn't make sense given how long it took for someone to report Caylee missing. It breaks my heart that this little girl suffered and died at the hands of her mother, and it makes me angry that her death and this case have become a circus. People are cracking jokes about it and turning it into a spectator event when the core reality is that a child was murdered.

I followed it in the beginning, but as of late, I can't watch it. I read articles every once in awhile and I hear people talking about it, but it breaks my heart. I have noticed lately that at least once a week, I read about a parent killing their child in the news. Our world is so messed up, I don't think I even want to bring children into it.
