They’re Screaming and I’m Smiling

Monday, July 18th, 2011

The not guilty verdict in the Casey Anthony case has disappointed the public and made me proud of the integrity of the system and the jurors, who must have known what would have pleased the crowd. Anthony was not declared innocent; she was freed because her guilt was not proved. That’s the law, thank God, and thank the Founders. All this happened near the 4th of July. The decision was a great prologue to the fireworks I can’t see this year because of the fire ban in our part of the country. This verdict was my 4th of July gift. By the way, when I hang the flag, I always sing Happy Birthday.
