So sad. I mean, no offense meant to her family, but she doesn't really deserve the extra media attention.

Very sad... First I heard about it. Perhaps that's because I get all my news from local papers, wikinews, and google. The latter two don't tend to headline that kind of thing, and the only person to get attention in the Roaring Fork Valley was Hunter Thompson... perhaps because he did himself in his home in Aspen.

CNBC is now reporting on whether Anna Nicole Smith's death will impact the markets.

Is there a sudden run on fat blondes???

Google does if you go to the entertainment section. (Dikiyoba didn't know either.)

I learned of this on the KoL Flaming pile of forum. I laughed.

This is only tragic if her life had gone unremarked. As it was, it only makes sense. How else could she continue to get the media attention she so richly desired?

Having no sympathy for Ms. Smith, I wish the regular media would go away, and she would get a final homage in Mad magazine. The media coverage is pure poison.

I was very saddened by her death. All this time I was hoping she would die on some kind of horrible orgy accident that would be caught on tape and made into a reality TV show on FOX. My hopes were dashed when I found out she went out like all the other ODing suckers.

It's nice to know that fate has a dark, twisted sense of humor.

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

I found out about this by reading PvP. :\ Then I checked it on wikipedia... I don't really have anything to say about her death, except.. too bad for her.

It's going to suck growing up as the kid where the deaths of your family members were not mourned and your parentage was hotly contested by several men.

At least she's rich. Just hope her father (whoever that is) doesn't blow it all before then.

Her current wealth is still up to the courts. Depending how that lawsuit for a share of her dead husband's estate goes the kid will be rich or selling mama's belongs on eBay.

Newsworthy?

Then we comment on it?

My cousin's brother just died. Mid thirties, self employed (farmer) with a wife and five kids, all who loved him. From cancer. That is tragic.

I'm sorry to hear that. Especially since he didn't have millions to waste on enjoying himself before the end.

This was actually covered by the largest local newspaper here. On two separate occasions, and the second one with photo and all. That's either a sign of the media going completely populist, or that she was an important character somehow. I'm guessing the former.

Well, it is in the case of this particular newspaper. They've usually steered clear of the traditional tabloid material.
