Anna Nicole Still Dead

Apparently it's news that Anna Nicole Smith died of a drug overdose. I am not surprised a bit. What surprises me is that there were no illegal drugs, either in her system or in her hotel room. Guess the maid got there first. The number one search on the internet today is "Anna Nicole Smith Photos." Some things never change.

Here's my question. Will the next generation's Elton John produce a song about this Playboy starlet. Is she the Turn of the 21st Century's Marilyn? I gotta think not. You never saw her on the arm of the President (not even that horndog Bill Clinton) and she was never cool enough to run with the Rat Pack, not even George Clooney's version.


Still the world seems a little less glittery and a tiny bit less fun, doesn't it?


Bracketology


In in the 73rd percentile in the nation, three of my Final Four are alive, and my national champion handed UNC its ass in OT last night. Still I only win my pools if Georgetown wins it all. Go Hoyas!


Puts It All In Perspective


Jason Ray, UNC Senior and hoops mascot remains on life support. I know how much kids like Jason put into their support of teams. I wish his family well.


Have a good one.

number one example of why we don't need 24-hour news cycles on a dozen channels.

Thanks for the link AND for choosing the Hoyas to win it all. I'm from the GU class of '84 and was in the New Orleans Superdome when Freddie threw "the pass." You cannot imagine the thrill of seeing GU win last night, with the Ewings and the Thompsons there. Unbelievable.

Now, to battle my Ohio brethren...

Jill -

I was born and bred on the Villanova Wildcats, but have grown to really enjoy this generation of Thompsons and Ewings.

I wish you all the best as you take on the Evil Empire.

Matt said...

since when has Ohio State been the Evil Empire on the court?

the Blue Devils are clearly the Yankees of NCAA hoops. And both have been ceremoniously disappointing lately...

i love this Final Four. i'd literally be happy to see any of these teams win.

Since the Jim O'Brien issues, I have disliked the Buckeyes. I tend to root for coaches more then teams, so when Gary Williams was there they were ok in my book. Not so much Randy Ayers.

On Anna-
Why do the news channels thrive on this one?? I don't get it...

On your bracket-
Not bad! I've got G-town as champs!

Wolfie -

For some reason that I only kinda get and you and Matt don't get, there is still an obsession with this woman. maybe it's that everything about her life and death were just a little bit odd. Maybe its the over the top bod or the 90 year old husband or the pot-smoking judge. Who knows. But I know people are interested.

oh i get it, i'd just prefer our "News" stations not fill half their content with this low-filter garbage two months after it stopped being a story. i can't change the channel fast enough when i see Nancy Grace on the screen and Anna Nicole in the runner.

still... is she our generation's marilyn? i just think there has to be better ...
