Casey! Anthony! Trial! In! Orlando!



Welcome to Basket Casey, where your friends-in-schadenfreude at Orlando Weekly will collect the detritus and minutiae of the Casey Anthony trial and surrounding media circus in Orlando. Because we’re already sick of it, we’ll leave the “straight” (ha) reporting to our more serious friends at, say, CNN, CFNews 13, WESH and the Orlando Sentinel. Instead, we’ll busy this blog with the not-fit-to-print trivia runoff of our national obsession with one Orlando party girl gone wrong. Yeah, we’re going there. And yeah, we do feel dirty, thank you.
