I love the internet, it is a huge repository of information, if you know where to look! It is also a huge garbage dump of disinformation. Sometimes it is hard to pull the pebbles of truth from the sea of flotsam and jetsam that is everywhere. That has been especially true in the two Florida cases of Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony.

Journalism is unbiased? Rubbish, journalism is a very biased business. These two cases are prime examples of that. I will be the first to stand in line as a journalist with a slant. My slant might be slightly different. I have no favorites, no pets, I hate them all.

The people involved with the Haleigh Cummings case represent all that is bad in society. I would not entertain any of the Croslin, Cummings, or Sheffield family in a woodshed. They are living proof that Darwin got it wrong. Evolution he claimed was about natural selection of the best traits in an animal. These people don’t have any best traits, in fact it is hard to find a least worse trait. There likely is only one killer, but they are all guilty of something. This case makes Agatha Christie’s opus Murder On The Orient Express look amateurish.

The Caylee Anthony case is little better. We have yet another group of disreputable people espousing rubbish at every opportunity. The latest defence team move by Jose Baez, getting judge Strickland to remove himself from the case is a fine example. This action will likely mean yet more delays in getting justice for a dead two year old. It is my guess that we will put a man on Mars before this trial gets started.

So yes, I am biased. I hate them all. There are however some people that are more objective than most journalists. I was given an anonymous tip late yesterday, it suggested that I look at a particular web site run by one Seamus O Riley.

I did, I suspect that Seamus O Riley might be a nom de Guerre, but I will leave that up to the reader to decide. What I did find was a wealth of well reasoned articles on both cases.I am pretty sure that I have talked to Seamus before, either that or he has a twin brother!

Everyone wants answers in the Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony cases. I’d like everyone to take a look at http://www.seamusoriley.blogspot.com/ and give me some feedback. There is a lot of food for thought on this site.
