Casey Anthony’s Parents to Appear on ‘Dr. Phil’

The parents of Casey Anthony, who was recently acquitted of killing her young daughter Caylee, will break their silence on the upcoming 10th season premiere of ‘Dr. Phil.’

The embattled couple had its pick of media outlets, but felt the show hosted by psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw was the best option. “We are hoping that by doing this interview, we will be able to help other people who may be experiencing struggles of their own. We certainly don’t want anyone to experience what we have these last three years,” Cindy Anthony said.

Here Are The Top Party Schools In The Country For 2011

The Princeton Review released its annual list of the top party schools in the country yesterday. And as always, the students from the number one school celebrated, and the administration was mortified.  Yes, Longhorn Fans, Texas makes the cut.

This year, Ohio University in Athens, Ohio was named the top party school in the country. The rankings are based on a survey of more than 122,000 students nationwide.

Ohio University . . . not to be confused with Ohio State . . . has a long-standing reputation as a major party school. Their Halloween party has been going on since the 1970s and draws at least 20,000 people.

After the rankings were released, Ohio issued a statement saying, quote, "We are disappointed in the party school ranking as it is not indicative of the overall experience of Ohio students and does not match the data we have collected."

For the 14th straight year, Brigham Young University in Utah was named the number one most stone cold sober school in the country.

Here's the complete list:

Cyclists Race JetBlue Flight Today

Ok, so Wichita Falls isn't as bicycle-friendly as alot of other cities but we're trying. You'd think since we hosted the biggest one-day bicycle ride in the world, we'd have something to support the local cycling community (I'll always hold out hope for a bike lane down Southwest Pkwy and Kemp!).  I recently took a quickie vaca out to California, not too far away from where this fun little bicycle vs Airbus race is going to happen.

People Are Harassing The Wrong Casey Anthony [Video]

The harrassment is still ongoing for the wrong Casey Anthony. There's a 43-year-old black guy in Darby, Pennsylvania who's absorbing far, far more than his share of the grief targeted at CASEY ANTHONY.  The reason?  His name ALSO happens to be Casey Anthony.

Small, tasteless joke:  Ain't this JUST like America, man.  A 25-year-old white woman gets away with murder and people immediately start blaming it on the black man. (KIDDING!)
