I don’t get it – and frankly it bothers me.

I don’t get the hoopla over Anna Nicole Smith. It seems like every other blog I read has a post about her – I’ve stopped reading them.

This morning on the Today show, they went way overboard about it and even had a “panel of experts” just to talk about her death – I didn’t watch.

It bothers me that there is so much attention on the death of this one person. Other people who have done and meant so much more often get little more that a mere mention in the news when they die.

Her death is even being discussed on our local news station – I’m not watching.

disclaimer – this post is not about Anna Nicole Smith. It’s about the over-reaction to her passing. I’m not going to write about her, at least not until all of the hoopla dies down.
