According to the media, we Americans can't seem to get enough of her. It seems she's bigger in death than in life. She would have loved all this attention, since that's all she was about.
The person we should feel sorry for is her daughter. About the only thing we Americans can do is pray for the best for the little baby and let the courts do their job.
Meanwhile, who cares who the father is? Anna Nicole was a bad girl who slept around with men, old and young. It seems that she didn't care much about herself so she used drugs to escape her life. No one brought this on her but herself. With the money she had, she could have certainly afforded the professional help to get a better life.
Let's move on. Even my old standard, Fox News, seems to think that we can't get enough of her. Everyone I know comments to me how sick they are of hearing about her, but it's almost like a drug we can't get enough of. We as viewers, readers, and listeners should contact media outlets and say "Enough".
