The saga continues: Day 2 - The Anna Nicole Smith Hearing; This entry begins at 12:50 a.m, February 21, 2007. My reasoning is two-fold; (a) To bring you up to speed before the morning festivities begin and (b) To aid me in the entry (and later constant editing). Here we go!
Since we've spoke last, the media has had a field day with Judge Larry Seidlin (confirming my first opinion of him several days ago). They have raised doubts about his court room methods, including interrupting the attorneys and occasionally taking over, asking his own questions. They have also compared his court room demeanor to that of Judge Ito's in the infamous O.J. Simpson farce.
TMZ.com, the site that produced the pictures of the refrigerator in Ms. Smith's Nassau residence, alleges that Judge Seidlin has aspirations of grandeur, in that he has submitted tapes for a possible Court TV type of show ala "Judge Judy" (whose last name happens to be Seidlin also). Seems likely watching him in the court room (Here come da judge, here come da judge).
Update: As of 3:00 p.m., the parties, Howard K. Stern, Larry Birkhead and Virgie Arthur have all viewed Ms. Smith's body at the Broward County morgue and exited understandably shaken. "Da Judge", Larry Seidlin (from the Three Stooges comedy team of Moe, Larry and Curly) has said he will come to a ruling by Friday morning.
In other news, Fred Goldman has won the rights to any royalties received by O.J. Simpson ostensibly steming from any book rights (I heard this rapidly on CNN and will clarify or correct it later).

Forgive me for not doing my usual tag jokes below as I don't think it fits the news of the day. Ok, Ok.......a few.
That's It For Today my little court reporters.
