    Hers is ending up a sad story, and no disrespect to the deceased intended, but the drowning coverage on some news channels on this is way overboard. There are far more important things going on in the world than this.

    I agree with you Electrichoser...my sympathies to the family. However, to the media and such..Why is this news? Society today is more concerned about celebrities and what is going on in their lives.

    Where is the news coverage about the Detroit FF killed, how about the Canadian FF killed in the flashover?

    I for one am tired about hearing about celebrity lives. I really could care less about what is going on with them. And...this should not be Breaking News!

    I also don't have much interest in the 'rich and famous', but the fact remains..a 39 year old woman is dead. Had she died in a fire would the opinion still be..'oh well' ?

    So now lets see all of those "stars" come out of hiding to proclaim how close they were to Anna and how much they will miss her.

    You won't... as they are not "newsworthy" except in the Metro Detroit and Winnepeg areas.

    I would get emotional over a John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, Audrey Hepburn and maybe a J'lo but not Anna.RIP anyway.

    Angry

    * Violence Said to Increase on Mexican Border
    * Anna Nicole Smith, 39, Dies After Collapse
    * Gaping Reminders of Aging and Crumbling Pipes

    I just copied the above from the National section of the NY Times. Anna rated second billing, meanwhile, 4 US servicemen died in Anbar today. Does anyone care?

    The idiot media will probably anoint her America's very own Princess Diana.

    A friend of mine's cousin was one of the 7 US Marines killed in a helicopter crash yesterday in Iraq. Now that's tragic. Anna Nicole.....not so tragic.

    Oh how, how I ask, will I go on?

    And let me offer up my prediciton here - she was drunk and/or drugged out of her mind.

    Oh the shock. The horror of it all.

    how dare you DaSharkie. She offered lots to soceity. Just think of all her great movies she made.... uhhh.... Hudsucker Proxy and The naked gun 33 1/2.


    and to say she didnt offer anything to society is a misrepresentation......


    she provided whacking material to many many teenage boys

    Thumbs down

    Yes, it is bad news to the family but we don't need 7 major news channels covering it. Maybe a mention of it in the news casts or a small write up for the news ticker that runs along the bottom of the tv screen, but they didn't need to but in with the breaking news headline to announce it.

    Thumbs down Allies?

    Any comments on the British Convoy "bounced" by the US in Iraq--and one Matty Hull killed--all hushed up for 4yrs?

    Maybe if "friendlies got foward" more often you would not be losing more troops.

    ****ed off-you betcha--the guy who led the attack comes from Boise---just seen it on our news--he is being hailed as a hero.

    If it was her, yes.

    And I'll be honest, I'm more upset about the cat we lost last night at a fire.

    How ironic, she always wanted to be Marylin Monroe, and she died pretty much the same way; dead in her room.

    I am not ever at any time overly interested in celebrity news, but I did catch bit of this on the news last night, and other than agreeing it was tragic - a loss of another person always is. And especially for the family and close friends, I didnt think it was heart-stopping "Breaking News". Pearl Harbor and the sudden death of a Country Leader are heart-stoppers, not some socialite.

    However, I did get very annoyed very quickly with this story when the commentator of the news stated something like "Heer-aldo" {Yes name intentionally spelled WRONG} was on the scene and would make his report later in the evening. It was also commented that Heer-aldo was expected to comment that death was by drug overdose.

    Personally I think the guy is a dork - but thats just me - but to make leading comments like that about anybody before the autopsy is done...... thats not news reporting thats heresay.

    Just sucks that in order to find really noteworthy news you have to dig deep and search hard.

    Who is Anna Nicole Smith?? How come I didn't see any mention of this on the new?

    The best was Jack Cafferty asking Wolfe Blitzer "Is Anna Nicole still dead?" after finishing a segment on "real" news.
