FF7-AC-Cloud in church

::massive eyebrow twitch::

I've been distracted from working on COI Redux by the Casey Anthony murder trial (partying young woman waits 31 days to report her toddler missing, comes up with endless litany of lies to explain her child's disappearance).

I thought the Prosecution were professional, passionate, and did an excellent job, given what they had to work with. The defense was inexperienced, sleazy, and definitely lacked credibility. The family is hopelessly dysfunctional and enabling of their daughter's narcissistic and sociopath behavior.

Disappointingly, the jury "deliberated" for barely 10 hours and returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty' to all substantive charges (murder, child abuse, and manslaughter). It's the OJ Simpson verdict all over again.

All I can say is that this reminds me to never underestimate the ability of people to be unscrupulous, selfish, and/or morons.

So I do what I usually do when I'm annoyed and frustrated at Real Life(tm) -- work on my fic. I'm afraid that the poor characters are in for a rough time....
