The last time I responded to a post about ANS I was censored. I'm going to try again with the hopes that a different perspective while possibly unpleasant is not reason enough to be censored.
Agreed, I am happy to not have to hear about her or the pink beribboned casket any longer. When the potential list of fathers began climbing the entire subject slipped into the hilarious category, especially for radio announcers. Agreed, a woman has died, earlier than she should have. I beleive the best part of her life was still unlived....if she could have straightened herself out. Living in the limelight is not always as flattering as many would believe. Its hard and demanding and lots of choices are made that are usually not in anyone's best interest. Like so many other people who's lives have been cut short, we'll never know, will we?
Any child who loses a mother should be cared for and loved, either by family or surrogates, but loved, nevertheless. Please, when you all consider this baby, remember all the others, as well, for surely they deserve your thoughts equally, yes? This baby would have grown up in the lense of the camera one way or the other because of who her mother is/was. She's not the first child who inherited millions early in life. Indeed, I hope the paternity of her parentage is solved, once and for all. Everyone deserves to know who they are.
What I don't get is the constant hand wringing and breast banging about the poor baby. That's precisely what rag editors want to hear because that means papers and stories are being sold. Forget about it, stop wailing over it, stop purchasing the papers that write about it and the baby could grow up happy andn satisfied.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
