BUT IS IT NEWS?








I know the Anna Nicole Smith aftermath is on some level fascinating to everyone on Terra, but is it news? If you think highly of popular culture and less of the weightier matters of the day then the diversion of the post mortem legal exploits surrounding the early demise of a silicone enhance nude model is right up your alley. So to speak. I think the many directions Anna Nicole's death tears at American hearts is synonymous with the many directions America is torn regarding many other issues. (Say taxes at a dinner party and see how many reactions you get.) This one is just more decadent. Iraq is a boiled pot roast with peppered potatoes; Anna Nicole is your three favorite flavors of ice cream with chocolate syrup, syrup walnuts whipped cream, sprinkles and a huge Maraschino on top. And you get paid to eat the ice cream. The Libby trial is fillet of sole; the Diaper Astronaut is funnel cake with powdered sugar. None of those who consume news, all news, want Brussels sprouts. That is unless the vegetable in question was buried under a molten mound of caramel so deep . . . well you get the picture. That fine dish would be the Impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney an even a great percentage of America would relish. That event would prompt those who cannot get enough of Anna Nicole Smith's earthbound problems to question, "Is it news?"

I was certainly amazed at the amount of coverage that CNN devoted to the "Smith Demise". The war in Iraq continued, the Libby trial went on, there were two mass shootings and we got hours of video of a bouncy blonde heavily-made up woman in various situations, none of which, make any difference to our day to day lives in the long run. Ah! It's life in these United States!

By the way, my bet is that cause of death will be viral endocarditis. It's the forensic pathologist in me just chomping to get out.
