“ Sometime this month, and as soon as this week, the court will issue its final decision in the case. It will be, at long last, the definitive adjudication of one of the most voluminous and colorful cases in the history of American jurisprudence. But for those whose lives constituted the case’s facts, the decision will mean less than nothing. For within one year of that morning in 2006, all of them would be gone.”
That’s from Dan Lee’s lengthy New York Magazine article about Anna Nicole Smith. And while the piece is interesting, I hate it when intelliectuals describe someone like Smith as “peculiarly American” or “quintessentially American.” Like we’re perfectly represented by a vacuous Playboy model known for overeating and overdosing on drugs. Kind of insulting, frankly.
