A Plea for Sanity

Why does it seem like Anna Nichole Smith's death is receiving more ink- and less sympathy- than Saddam Hussein's hanging? Let the poor woman rest in peace, already!

I've never heard of Anna Nichole Smith - who on earth is she?

No you don't have to answer that... I don't really need to know.

Thanks Tony, you said just what I was thinking.

And if this message comes through 3 times, blame Blogger and its errors.

Though really, can you ever hear from me too often? *G*

Because the media loves sex, especially when it dies in a really interesting way.
When Clinton had his little 'incident' can you remember the papers giving any other news as much attention. The world didn't stop, the press just ignored it. I wonder how Saddam would have been handled if he had had a really cool sex life? Wonder if they'll figure out a way to claim he was Anna's baby's father?

It IS a strange world. I chose to draw Anna Nicole for this week's IF topic. Not to glorify her at all, because I also think the whole situation is so totally weird. I think the media is really to blame. I think they spend more time thinking about how to MARKET the "news" than in deciding what really should be shared.

Thanks for your thoughts!
