Most of our janitorial staff at work, and I work for a newspaper, don't speak English at all. I found that all to be so bazaar when I first moved here three years ago. It was AMAZING to me how so many people in one town had no idea what the others were even saying.

I decided to learn Spanish instead.... so I could read the billboards and the signs in some of the grocery store.

But what I will say in regards to Orlando as a whole is that Latino's don't play when it comes to families and babies. They won't be giving Casey any slack.

Baez is on clear ground here, he could have suggested this as a possible scenario, and Casey readily agreed and ran with it, or she herself could have told him this story, and he took it at face value. He has no liability in this drama, client told him the information.

Baez saw CA as a bottomless check, with guaranteed payment, and the added bonus of media attention. He sees himself as an Orlando "F. Lee Bailey". Right.
What do you mean by bottomless check? How is he being paid? I agree that media attention could be a plus for him in future work. Just don't know who is paying him now, the court or CA.

If you are watching this trial, Cindy Anthony always has her head down and writing. I think that is where the book and movie will come from on the Anthony side.
Don't forget, however, that if convicted, she cannot profit - so, she can certainly write a novel, but, I believe it will simply be an exercise of grammar and penmanship.

That's true.

That's what I thought too and maybe it was good therapy for her but now it's lookin' like she has been preparing her lies for the defense. Good ole Cindy, coming back stronger than ever.

I found this commentary in the Orlando Sentinel which I think is very interesting. When you compare this case to other cases in Florida it puts things in a different perspective. Baez is doing better than I thought he would.

"I am beginning to wonder if Casey Anthony and Josť Baez could pull off the impossible.
Not exoneration from the jury but a death sentence from the judge."

Casey Anthony if convicted can't profit from Caylees' death. George and Cindy are free to profit anyway they chose.Hopefully they won't!

I could be wrong but I thought I heard that Cindy Anthony testified in a deposition way back or maybe reported to police very early on in the case that she did the google searches, so her testifying now that she did those is not new information.

I heard Baez got an initial cash payout of $250,000 from Casey, she sold pictures and video of Caylee. Now Casey is declared "Indigent" by the court, and Baez is bellying up to the public trough, with almost a blank check from the State of Florida, as they don't want to say "noL to a request from Baez and risk appeal issues. Fat money for a former ambulance chaser and defender of petty criminals.

Meanwhile, the State of Florida has no money for education, has made cuts to pensions, does not invest in infrastructure projects, and cuts higher education, and services for elderly.

Great. But the State of Florida has plenty of money for a death penalty media circus. With Baez as the ringmaster clown.
