Rocket Science Strikes Again...

     It's official...Anna Nicole Smith died from an accidental, polydrug overdose.  I NEVER would have guessed that in a million years.

**THUD**

     For the love of God, I am sick of hearing about this poor woman's life!  I would be curious to know how many thousands of dollars it has taken to determine that she DIED FROM A PRESCRIPTIVE DRUG OVERDOSE.  If only "they" would have called ME, I could have saved people a hella load of money on that final report...and I am neither a pathologist nor a rocket scientist.  LOL

     It amazes me the stories that "entertain" us (focusing mostly on American culture now) these days...dramatic, bizarre, freak-show-type tales of other people's lives.  I guess this is why reality TV is sooo popular in our culture, too.  Our OWN lives have become so mundane and boring, we must rely on the tragedies of others (and I'm sorry, but every contestant on any reality TV show is a "tragedy"!) to entertain us or feel better about ourselves in some sick sort of way.

     For instance, we now have TV shows about midgets, obese people trying to lose weight for money, celebrities trying to lose weight for money, kids singing with the dream to become an "American Idol" but usually ending up humiliated on national television, stupid women trying to win the "love" of a bachelor for cash, and the list goes on and on.

     Let's face it folks...we are ALL fat, stupid, ugly, untalented, graceless, irritating slobs to some degree if that's what we choose to see in other people around us.  We will never be any more than what we choose to believe is REALITY about our neighbor. 

     Maybe that's why so many of "us" are killing ourselves these days from "accidental drug overdoses"...just a thought...

Celebrity...ugh...it is a fact now that more kids want to become celebrities when they grow up than want to become doctors, nurses and teachers...what a sad statement on society when people would rather be famous for being famous than for having discovered the cure for cancer or some such disease.  Sad, sad, sad....just like Anna Nichole.  All that happens when I hear her name now is I feel profoundly sad at yet another life wasted on a dream with no substance...

I have found a sure fire way to clear out my bedroom and get to watch what I want on tv...I put on Nancy Grace or one of the other Anna Nicole watchers....and the kids leave me alone...what will I do when they run out of anna things to talk about???

All along i have suspected Anna's companion Howard as having administered the fatal dose that did her in--I was very interested that the police ruled that out as a possibility as he was not in the vicinity.
