Tomorrow is the day - a public memorial service for little Caylee Anthony
will be held. Televised, audiotaped, photographed and regurgitated for
public consumption. The private burial service hasn't been scheduled,
or if it has been, that information hasn't been released.
Yet even as those who knew, or came to know Caylee Marie Anthony
have a public venue in which to acknowledge her life and grieve for her,
the controversies and issues surrounding Casey Anthony's arrest and
impending trial flourish.
In all the hoopla the defense has generated around Casey Anthony, the
more this child, her life, and her death become less central to the issues.
Thankfully public interest and concern has kept the media active in
seeing that Caylee's face in photos and videos reminds everyone what
this case really is all about, and hopefully will do so until a trial is
