I was listening to an Orlando radio station today and took notes from an on-air interview with "Marinade Dave," who is the blogger that had contact with Judge Strickland. (note: if you've lived in a cave for the past few days and need to know what I'm talking about, here's a link! http://www.wesh.com/news/23173465/detail.html). First of all, my thanks to JBean for giving me permission to post this thread with no link to back up my words. This is, afterall, my own paraphrasing of responses given by the blogger on the air. I tried to be as neutral as possible, so the following does not represent my own ideas or opinions. I wouldn't say that any of it is "ground breaking," but it is interesting to hear his side of the story. So without further ado, here are my notes from the radio interview (in advance I apologize for any typos or misspellings!): He got his name from a marinade he used to make. He first became interested in writing about the case when he went to Jay Blanchard Park to watch the black water divers, and he spoke with LP. He wants justice for Caylee, "that's all that matters." He's getting death threats, especially from women. They think he was responsible for taking down a judge. He writes with a middle-of-the-road kind of tenor; he doesn't allow bashing and name calling on his blog. Judge S. saw him in the courtroom and recognized his photo from the blog. JS told him that he was fair. There was no contact outside the courtroom, only that one meeting (DaughterAlice's note: not entirely true, depending on your definition of "meeting," see the * below) Wrote the blog entry "Casey Anthony Must Die," a year ago today, but it was NOT pro-death penalty. It was about people who were ready to execute her without even giving her a fair trial. No emails were exchanged with JS; *JS called him after he (the blogger) got out of the hospital. He does not get paid for his blog. Has been mislabled as a racist due to another post he gave a racey title to. His writings are often misinterpreted because people read only the titles and not the whole post. Said it was pure stupidity: the defense rolled the dice and that got a tougher judge. He said "they used me like a whipping boy." He does a lot of research for his blogs. He WILL return to the courtroom despite what happened.
