As America mourns the passing of Anna Nicole Smith, count on bloggers to put it all in perspective:

The mainstream media appears to lack perspective & judgment. Smith - although a media celebrity- was a not-very-bright, minimally talented, personality-disordered woman whose claim to fame was exposing her fake breasts in Playboy. Not to be unkind to the dead, nor to mobile homes, but this stuff occurs in trailer parks all over the world, every hour of every day.
Am I the only person surprised to find out she was just 39? I would've put her at closer to 45 than 40. I mean, that means she married that rich old guy when she was in her mid-20s! In hindsight, though, it's clear that match wasn't a May-December romance, it was more like an October-December one.
