WJXT-4, a Jacksonville TV station, reports a "rush" for seats at the Orange County Courthouse this morning, evidently akin to a Black Friday stampede, due to the expected testimony of Cindy Anthony, Casey's mother. Here's the jewel:

Among those sprinting for a chance to see Cindy Anthony testify were women in dresses and a man wearing a neck brace.

Unfortunately, reporters were not able to interview the man to see if his neck injury was caused by an excessive craning or pivoting of the head to view the televised trial, perhaps while being inconvenienced by his crying child.
