The Sound of Morons Weeping
I'm not even going to mention her name or link to any of the sure to be many stories about her death; it's unbelievable how people can feel any sympathy, any sadness for the death of one of the most embarassing, selfish, greedy celebrities from the last 15-plus years. "Oh, she went through so much in the last while."
Oh, get over it. The Dead Celebrity only did what was best for herself. And will anybody be surprised if her death is ruled an overdose? No. But you'll be able to hear about it for the next weeks, and months in the tabloids and in the mainstream press. Here, now, our next Marilyn Monroe! The overkill coverage of this story would lead anyone to believe an important person died. What's also dying is the credibility of journalists who cover this story beyond a couple grafs. And it looks like I'm about done.
