Death of A....

Over the last day the media has made it seem like a President died. One news commentator even said it was a tragedy for America. I'm sorry, Anna Nicole Smith's death is a tragedy for her friends and family, but that's where it should end. It is not a tragedy for America. She was famous for being famous. Like so many of our celebrities nowdays that seem to have accomplished nothing for their fame except the fame itself.

I feel sorry for her child that will now not know her/his (I don't know if the child is a boy or girl) mother. I feel sorry for her Mother who has lost her child. A parent outliving a child is hard. I feel sorry for her husband/boyfriend who has lost a lover, a friend. But that's about where my sympathy ends. I feel like she's gotten more press coverage than the death of Gerald Ford. And say what you want about Mr. Ford, he was a former President of this country and his actions created history. Her actions created tabolid televison.

We can blame the meida, they're the ones creating the headlines and the stories about her death. But they wouldn't be giving it to us if we weren't listening and buying into it.
