Gotta Watch: Facing the flood; dodging jury duty; Gaga video game backlash

The rising Mississippi and the start of the Casey Anthony murder trial were two of the more popular stories of the week. However many of you were just as interested in Technology Writer Doug Gross' story on Lady Gaga and video games.

The fight against the Mississippi – Leaders in Louisiana are forced to choose between keeping Baton Rouge and New Orleans dry at the expense of people in towns like Stephenville and Morgan City. People in those small towns are going to come up on the short end, and are doing all they can to fight against the Mississippi.

The jury duty dodge – It's being dubbed as the "Trial of the Century," but apparently the only people excited about being there are the reporters. Potential jurors are coming up with every excuse imaginable to get out of serving in the Casey Anthony trial. Take a listen.

Doug Gross fires back – CNN Tech Writer Doug Gross has a few fans and few more enemies who didn't exactly go gaga over his latest article "Five more video games Lady Gaga should be in." Doug discusses some of the reader comments.

    You have to feel bad for these people about to lose their homes. Or I guess I should say , you should feel bad. All most of us can offer is our prayers and best wishes to these individuals . I personally lost my home and all posessions twice, due to hurricanes in mississippi . It initially breaks your mind . But you just pick up and try all over again. Hoping the best to all of you who are about to be affected by this.

    i couldnt be on the casey anthony jury simply because i believe all the existing facts: 1. She waited for a month to report her daughter missing, with pictures of her partying it up on the month in question. 2. Chlorophorm was found in her trunk and was looked up on a computer in her house..

    I wouldn't want to be on that jury. Civic duty or not. I served on a domestic abuse case a few years back,and that was enough to give me nightmares for months. The graphic pics are still in my mind's eye.I can only imagine what is going to come out at this trial. Didnt she beg her parents not to come? She should've given her parents custody rather than (allegedly) killing her 2 year old baby.

    Is Obama a liar or just criminally insane?
