    Anderson, it is true that you can be very in tune with your child, but this woman makes no sense at all. I am perplexed by the whole story, she is just being ridiculus.

    Stephanie~ Good call on the pediatrician. I haven't heard them talk about that yet. It would be interesting to see what address she has down at the doctor's office, or who brought her, or who paid for the visit

    Wow....a lizard becomes a father and is over 100 years old?!?! Does anyone know if the lizard had "help"? A "little blue pill" maybe?

    Wow. This is my first time reading this blog, and I'd just like to say that I'm very impressed with the people and taken with the concept. Newswise, I don't really understand the whoel media frenzy with the Caylee story. Yes, it is horrible, and I feel for the little girl, but don't children go missing everyday? And yes, Casey seems a terrible, uncaring mother, but aren't there so many more that are so much worse?

    The story about the lizards is just the perfect way to end tonight's show. Sweet! 🙂

    The lizard story is great. CNN also reported that the rare giant turtle who is 70 years old is also a new dad. He's apparently the last male of the species.

    Oh what a lovely lizard. Henry isn't going to be someone's dinner, is he? Good Thursday evening..night all.

    Wow! That is so cool about the lizards! (Kismet?) I guess there is still hope for some of us...

    I wonder how responsible she was about visiting the pediatrician? Children below two have many immunizations and must see the doctor every couple of months...could they supeona Caylee's medical records and see if maybe her physician was concerned about her care?

    Did Caylee grandparents have a new driveway put in recently? If that story is true, could the 2-yr child be ‘nearby’, buried under the driveway?

    if we're confused.. i'm sure the police are as well

    IF the mother knows where her daughter is and is keeping it from the police out of fear of drug dealers, or whatever. All she needs to do, is tell the police who & where they live. They can take a SWAT team and rescue the child. The mother & grandparents know and they are covering it up. The grandparents haven't exactly been open and honest either. Now grandmother says she WASHED her daughters clothes and the grandfather an ex-cop. They knew exaclty what they were doing.

    Even if it was a supposed drug raid... Do they not know who their own mayor is? And also, why in the world would police be treating people like this in a drug raid, and killing dogs? I agree with the little girl, how can you trust the police if they treat people like this?

    I find it very difficult to understand why the police department raided this mayors home. I am sure the dogs were trying to protect their home. They had to have barked. It is just hard to believe.

    August 7, 2008 at 10:56 pm |
  25. Jo Ann, North Royalton, Ohio

    How sad about those poor dogs! There was no excuse for the police to do this! I feel so badly for the mayor and his wife.

    i do not understand this story. There is no logic to what the family is saying. It is important not to jump to conclusions, and easy to condemn people without being privy to all the evidence, but the logic of Casey saying she feels her daughter "is close" and hinting that she is somehow in danger if she talks ... it just doesnt make sense.

    I have a three year daughter and I would not be able to even function is she went missing they would have to sadate me.

    Joining the blog very late...the police have searched the grandparents where they haven't been for a month but have they searched where Casey lived for the last month? What did they find there?

    If Caylee is found dead, what happens next to Casey? What happens to her current charges?

    I think they are trying to hold the mom as long as possible..

    "There is just no acceptable excuse for this woman partying while her daughter is missing."

    Unless she is partying because her daughter is gone and the responsibility has been washed away.
