a new circus is coming to clearwater
The location for the Casey Anthony Trial jury selection location is clear now. The city of Clearwater is the location. Clearwater is an area of Pinellas County, very close to St.Petersberg, Florida – which is home to the Dali Art Museum, (my favorite in all of Florida!).
It didn’t take long for the media to descend on the location. In truth, the news in Palm Beach last night was curiously solemn as they realized it was not the location for jury selection.
Clearly, this case created a feeding-frenzy, and the media are like piranhas. Well, I imagine that’s how it feels to those involved in this trial.
This photo, shot early this morning, shows how the media already lining up for the events of the day!
The truth is, the location has been discussed all weekend as a probable location – so much for secrecy!
The prospective jurors know what’s coming now – unless they live under a bushel, they’ve heard the news of this weekend’s big story: The Casey Anthony Circus is coming to Town.
It’s only fitting, really. As that area is home to the Ringling College of Art and Design, and the Ringling Brothers Museum – another wonderful museum! (Note: The Ringling College and Circus are located in Sarasota; very close to Clearwater.)
In the meantime, we can just hope that fair and impartial jurors will be found – and in short order, too!
If anyone can pull this off, the Honorable Judge Belvin Perry, Jr., can do it!
I hear the roar of justice with the smell of the circus greasepaint in the air – all the way from Clearwater to where I sit! Smells pretty good, too!
