Very sad. :(

I'm not a conspiracy theorist but that lawyer/boyfriend/whatever Howard K. Stern is such a creepy figure in that tragic scenario, including her son's death.

Whatever happened, whether OD, or whatever it's just such another chapter in an extreme example of the pitfalls and consequences of the pursuit of fame and fortune or greed. Greed for money, greed for a beautiful trophy wife, whatever.

I feel so sorry for her daughter who will have to grow up being dragged through the courts.

Oh, I have no problem with the old man bein' all happy with a young playboy bunny and if he wants to throw his money at her more power to her.

It's just all the creepy excesses, weird lifestyle, drugs, money-grubbing hangers-on. The "famous for being famous" thing and the whacky way she raised her son. The whole thing became so unreal and unhealthy that something tragic like this was bound to happen. :(

Fox News is also carrying a near-death story of her being face-down in a swimming pool a couple of months ago as well.

Barack Obama: I'm fired up and running for president

Sen. Barack Obama has declared he wants to be the Democratic choice for president in next year's election. Obama stood on the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois, Saturday and said he wanted to follow Abraham Lincoln from the Illinois Legislature to the White House. "It's time to turn a page, right here and right now," he told a cheering and chanting crowd. "Let's get to work."

I think Obama and Rex Grossman have a lot in common.

Both are virtual rookies who have/will ged their butts kicked when wading with the big dogs.

Both think they already have the swag when they haven't earned their stripes.

Nuff said!

Chrysler to cut 13,000 jobs

Chrysler, whose year-long slump has dragged it down to fourth place among U.S. automakers, announced plans today to cut 13,000 jobs through 2009 as it tries to stem widening losses. The cuts represent 16 percent of the staff at the North American unit of DaimlerChrysler.
