Casey Anthony's Body Language Tells a Story

"Everyone is watching Casey Anthony's every move, including the jury, who will ultimately decide the 25-year-old mother's fate," reports The rest of the story follows:

But as everyone watches Casey during her murder trial, her body language seems to be painting a very different picture than it did nearly three years ago.

Casey has now been in court many times, and there has certainly been a growing difference in her appearance and mood.

From a physical perspective, Casey's hair is now much longer, she's gained a little bit of weight, and there has also been a change with how she interacts with other people in the courtroom.

Lately, we have not seen her joking, laughing or smiling.

According to body language expert Susan Constantine, that's because there is now a lot more at stake. Now that she's on trial for murder, it's more real.

"This whole case is about demeanor and deception, and her demeanor just doesn't match up to what she is saying," said Constantine. "That's why people are questioning her truthfulness."

"What I do as a body language expert is I look at what's being spoken at that moment, then look over and see what her response is," she continued. "Is that expression something that should be expressed at that moment? If it doesn't match, she has removed herself. She has distanced herself, and that is profound."
What to watch for during the trial

According to Constantine, "Body Language 101" isn't just about watching a gesture and defining what it means.

Here's an interesting fact: We transmit 2,000 silent messages of communication every hour. Every single gesture is based on an emotion inside of us.

Look at facial expressions, voice, and tie that into the content.

The Girl in the Blue Mustang

Just watched a repeat of The Girl in the Blue Mustang, on MSNBC's Dateline.

I am addicted to those shows: Dateline ID, 48 Hours, On the Case With Paula Zahn. It is amazing how popular this genre has become; you can find a murder docudrama on 24/7 these days thanks to all the channels available on cable. I am old enough to remember when 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13 were it – and 13 rarely.

Tom Selleck's 'Fitz Special' Brings Reality to Blue Bloods

Is it me or does Tom Selleck's character Frank Reagan (NYC's fictional Police Commissioner) in Blue Bloods
remind you of the character A.J. Cooper, which he played on the now-cancelled but former hit show Las Vegas? Those of you who watched both shows will notice that both character's are wearing the same gun, which I thought was a 1911, but now, after watching an episode of Blue Bloods where it is specifically mentioned, I understand it is called a Fitz Special. (And I have been reading that he may have even worn the same pistol in Magnum P.I.; Selleck is a gun collector, I bet it is his own piece.) The website, a weapons-enthusiast site, offers some interesting insight into Selleck's understanding of guns, and the Fitz Special in particular. I quote:
"Anyways, as you are all aware I am sure Tom is a real gun guy.  I was watching an episode and…
