You remember the case. Caylee Anthony, two years of age and the child of Casey Anthony of Orlando, FL, died in 2008. Her mother reported her missing (after 31 days!) in July of that year, and the little girl's body was found in December. Charged with the child's murder, Casey said she had turned Caylee over to a nanny, and then in her trial claimed the girl drowned in the family's swimming pool, with the body being hidden by Casey's father. And Casey said she had been sexually abused by her father.
It was one of the most disturbing cases of child abuse/murder we ever saw, and people are still flabbergasted that the jury bought the stories her attorney spun in court. For whatever reason, Casey was found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child, but guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Well, fast forward five years, and People magazine is out with an article saying that Casey in which we learn that Casey is bored, hanging around the house all day, surfing the interwebs, not working, not socializing, just woolgathering all the livelong day.
It makes me wonder why she didn't move far, far away (Kazakhstan is nice, this time of year) (I guess) and dye her hair red and change her name, and appearance, by law, and surgery, respectively, and do something worthwhile for someone?
What would you do if you were in her cheap shoes?
I would consider moving to another planet, or at least another continent, and changing my name and my attitude, and I think I would try working on behalf of animals, or people who can't do much on their own behalf, such as abused kids, and people fighting physical limitations.
It's never too late to turn the Wheel of Karma again.
