Kim has up a bit of a memorial to Anna Nicole Smith that I agree with wholeheartedly.
Damn right. I’ve always gotten a kick out of flamboyant celebrities and entertainers who understand how to exploit the public propensity to mindless adoration and take maximum advantage of it in the short space of time they can. Good for them. I really can’t add anymore to what Kim said, and it’s the best analysis of that sort of thing you’re likely to read. Reminded me just a bit of Ayn Rand’s praise of Marilyn Monroe — though Miss Rand did not see fit to grace us with photos.
But there is one thing I’ve got to call Kim on:
She started off as a counter girl at the Dairy Queen in Mexia, Texas,
and anyone who’s ever been to Mexia (and other towns like it) will not
begrudge inhabitants of said towns the opportunity to escape them any
way they can.
Mexia, Texas, I guess; but not Mexico, Mexico.
