Anna Nicole Smith has died in Florida. She was 39, and the cause of her death isn't known.
The Texas girl was a Playboy Playmate, reality TV star, jeans model, mother, billionaire's widow, a stripper and ... well, there are other descriptions of Anna Nicole's celebrity but they are all similar: She seems to have been famous only for being famous. The story of her death will likely be on my newspaper's front page tomorrow.
I don't mean this disrespectfully, but more to start a conversation: Why do we care so much what happened to Anna Nicole Smith?
