Another diatribe

Anna Nicole is dead. It's a shame when anyone dies, even if it's someone we love to hate. What kills me is the comparisons to Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. There are none, other than looks. Marilyn might have been messed up, but she was at least talented. Watch Bus Stop.

Jayne was super smart (163 IQ) played violin and piano well enough to have made a living doing it, spoke 6 languages, and could act. Her comedic talents were really good, and in her more obscure drama parts (I say obscure becuase she was seriously acting in them, not oozing sex) like The Wayward Bus, she was excellent.

Anna Nicole didn't have any talent, except for self publicity, one she did share with Jayne Mansfield. So, let her rest in peace, hope her child has a life without insane influence, and stop the comparisons. All three need a break.

Yeah, the wishes for the child are nice, Mike, but made in vain. The newborn daughter is already the center of a custody battle based on the multimillions the wee one just inheirited and not on the welfare or best interests of the child.

Anna Nicole was famous for being famous, like another blonde who is currently in every other headline, except this one is skinny and untalented.

The death of a celebrity (any celelbrity) unfortunately throws the media into deth throes of hyperbole, as they try to out do each other.

I know you're not supposed to speak evil of the dead, but let's not lie about them either.
