We have been remiss

You say you're tired of mundane news? Things like Britain, Denmark and possibly Lithuania pulling troops out of Iraq? The Scooter/Shooter trial? Bald Britney in re-rehab? Courage, friends, courage. I bring you the latest on Anna Nicole Smith. With deep apologies for dropping the ball in keeping you updated.

It seems that even embalming is not enough to preserve Smith's, ummm, legacy. While folks are queuing up for assorted court battles about where she is to be buried, who is the father of her child, and disposition of her assets, it seems her body is succumbing to nature. Let me speak clearly. She is decomposing at a pretty good clip and my guess is that she doesn't look terrific.

The Broward County (Florida) medical examiner is pressing to get this woman buried. What's holding things up is an assortment of court battles. Even though Smith and her mother were estranged, Mum is determined to bury her girl child in Texas. But her most recent boyfriend of record says she wanted to be buried in the Bahamas next to her son. What? Not next to her beloved J. Howard Marshall, the cadaverous 89-year-old millionaire she snagged one year before his timely death? I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

Now some would say that Smith's life was rather sordid. Which probably goes a long way toward explaining why her death is equally bizarre. But time marches on. And news about Anna Nicole Smith has moved below the fold and, in some cases, is just a wee piece tucked away on page 17. The Clothesline is dedicated to keeping you abreast of breaking news about Smith. It is the very least we can do.

Yeah, pretty much the least.

Ah, Swallow, we live to serve. Is not a parallel universe preferable to reality? So glad you appreciate our efforts to perpetuate that at the Clothesline and thanks. Barbara

It occurs to me that the accompanying photo of our gal Anna raises one of the truly great questions of our time. How do celebrities de-thatch their pits such that they can expose them to intense, up-close scrutiny?
