Rest In Peace

Anna Nicole Smith.  She was killed by the disease of celebrity.  Even the birth of her daughter could not assauge her grief over the death of her beloved son.  Did she give up on life?  What meaning is there in a life lived in camera glare and under scrutiny, your rightful fortune withheld by scheming step-children?  The ballooning body, the self-medication, the rootless, restless meandering.  Hotel to hotel to hotel.  Celebrity homelessness.  The poor dear. 

Rest in Peace Anna Nicole.

A true crime writer has raised a theory that Jeffrey Dahmer killed Adam Walsh, son of America's Most Wanted host John Walsh in 1981.  (Dahmer would have been 21 at the time.  This would have been after his first murder).  Like John Walsh, I don't believe it.  It doesn't reflect Dahmer's signature.  Dahmer was interested in relationships with dead things.  He would never have discarded Adam's head in an irrigation canal.  He would have kept it close to him.

Rest in Peace Adam.

I found and bought Life 102: What to Do When Your Guru Sues You by Peter McWilliams from Amazon marketplace.  See previous post for details.  I look forward to reading the book that a cult leader has tried to supress.

Rest in Peace Peter.
