Could Anything Be Sadder Than The Casey Anthony Case?

The whole thing fills me with deep-seated dread, and such horrid feelings I need to hose myself down every time I hear about it.

This is a woman who obviously had something to do with killing her daughter for whatever crazed, superficial reason (not that there's ever a more meaningful reason), and sent the cops on wild goose chases thanks to her terrible alibis and rickety excuses.

A woman who was involved in and/or covered up the extermination of a child, and who in the process destroyed her own life, while lying and equivocating about her misdeeds even more than that other Anthony, Mr. Weiner, has about his.

Every new revelation -- the duct tape on the two-year-old's mouth, the googling of child-killing methods -- makes one sicker and sicker as the dark side of Americana reminds us once again that home can be where the heartlessness is.

I am so horribly sad for Caylee -- and even for Casey.

Casey is a very sick woman whose child interfered with her lifestyle.  How very sad that Caylee even remotely knew this Anthony family.  Casey has the profile of a loser:  high school drop-out, pregnant at 19, not sure who the father is (Cindy said it is one of two guys) and deliberately withholding information about the father.  All of this in addition to being a sociopath, borderline personality and manic depressive tendencies.  Let's hope she pays with her life for the horrors  she has brought to Caylee.

Sarah doesn't kill her children. She just makes them go on Dancing with The Stars.

But Michael, there is a bright side to this horrid tale.  And, there is a place for Casey.  She's a sociopath, pure and simple.  Given her incessant lying, the complete absence of empathy, and her having a void where most people have moral center, she'd make a great political candidate.  Look out Sarah!

It amazes and saddens me how the co-dependent family STILL walk on egg shells with her thinking they can somehow control what she will disclose. The poor little girl is gone & she's not coming back now.

This horrible woman didn't deserve to have that child and the child REALLY did not deserve that have THAT "mother!"

We are no longer human. We are products, consumers, statistics and trends. To me, it is no wonder anyone treats themselves or another human being like an 'it'.

Child murder was not invented in the 21st century. Parents have been killing their kids since the beginning of time. Unwanted babies used to be left out in the woods to die of exposure. We are actually a *more* just and humane society now because we take steps (however flawed) to prevent these occurrences today.

Speak for yourself, honey.  Just because other people are heartless assholes doesn't mean everyone iz.

In a whole other terrible story, word has leaked that Stephen Heighton, co-owner of Barracuda gay bar, has died. This is extremely sad. I adored him. We just did an event at the bar whereby pre-Tonys Martha Wash performed. Condolences to Bob.

Who *is* the child's father?

She just remembered the kid drowned! I guess she has bad short-term memory.

Casey is a total psycho and liar. You're right, this is all so pathetic.
