Vickie A.N. Smith, Rest In Pictures

First Molly Ivins, now Anna Nicole Smith. She is the epitome of the manufactured star that never rose, except to radiate the tragic and the pitiful from every zenith her manufacturers could hang her from. So they hanged her. There was beauty in her, unquestionably. Her pre-fame pictures, with child, show that there was something more than beauty too. But the collective murders of societies addicted to witch-hunting voyeurism need their victims. How voluptuously she fit the coroner's bill. What the world is coming to is a question best answered by sighs, and sights.

Anna Nicole Smith, the Covers. The best one is from June 1993. Click on the thumbnails to see larger view. And because some of you would never forgive me, and would have the right never to forgive me, if Anna Nicole in her more pious poses wasn't also eulogized, you can see her here and here, and, most classically of all—the pose she took with her to heaven's gate, at St. Peter's autograph-hungry request—here.

The following few comments, while cheesy as hell, are nevertheless more authentic than the bewildering tripe dished out by the prim and proper. The comments were posted within moments and hours of Anna Nicole's death in south Florida on Thursday, and are drawn verbatim from Playboy's forum:

  • Wow...just...wow. I never really cared much for her, but I'm truly at a loss of words.
  • When she debuted she was the hottest woman around. People who only knew her from her E! show will find that hard to believe, I'm sure. She just could never quite get a grip on things.
  • I remember when my wife and I were vacationing in Venice, we went down to the dining area for breakfast, and all the help were poring over the local newspaper--"Dee-anna, Dee-anna morte!" they kept saying, and it was true, Princess Diana had been killed. That was a weird day! Just like today. A dreary, rainy, empty day full of nothing but grey thoughts and now this. Her blondeness, loneliness, sweetness, anxiety, sexiness, naivete, her grasping, confused self. All gone.
  • A beautifully women living a troubled life. Her pain is over, RIP.
  • Anna - Rest in Peace - a classic PMOY and a real class act. she was one of the best Playmates of the 90's
  • This is really shocking! I saw a bulletin on MySpace saying she'd died but I thought it was just one of those things people post to get your attention and to click on it, then I logged onto internet movie database. This is very sad, she aspired to be like Marilyn Monroe and like Marilyn Monroe she has had a short and in some ways tragic life. Rest in peace Anna, wherever you are.
