Casey Anthony Trial Addicts


You knew you were addicted to the Casey Anthony trial when...

Unless you have been living under a rock you obviously heard of the Casey Anthony trial. You might not have followed the Trial Of The Decade, but many people did.
Those of us who are die-hard followers are referred to as addicts. We wanted all the details.
With modern technology we were able to follow the trial via TV, Internet, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, media social groups, among many other ways.
I've compiled the responses I collected when I posted this question on my Facebook, Twitter, texts, email and so on.
I was interested to hear what others had to say. How did we get so involved in this trial?
What makes us so curious and in awe of the daily proceedings?
Each of us had our own reasons. We all had our own opinions. We all continue to want Justice For Caylee.
Feel free to post why you were addicted to the trial in the comment section below.
