Thought of The Day 2/9

Why do people glorify celebrities that die? The big thing going on right now is that Anna Nicole Smith died yesterday. Now she's all over the news and Internet. "Why did we fall in love with her"... "she wanted to be Marilyn Monroe" ... blah blah blah.

She died, probably from an overdose, and now she's gone. Big deal. Hundreds of thousands of people die everyday. People who made a difference in the world, or people who were good parents, or people who were just plain and ordinary. Why don't they get reported? Because they weren't famous in the first play. I say fuck that.

She died, put her in the obituary, and call it a day. We all die. I'm going to die, your going to die, and every celebrity is going to die. If you liked them, then go ahead and mourn them and pay your respects, but don't make them into "heroes" because they died.

Seriously. Congratulations your dead... just like the 5 billion or so people on this planet before you.
