Then, she presented this... to put our celebrity obsession into perspective...
"Since (Anna Nicole Smith's) son Daniel died, which was three days after the birth of her daughter, there have been 10,461 stories of her on American television.
Since (his) death, there have been 482 American soldiers killed in this war."
It reminds me of the beginning of the AIDS crisis when Larry Kramer presented the fact that...
"The New York Times wrote 54 articles about the Tylenol poisoning scare of 1982 within a 3-month period, with 4 articles on the front page and there were 7 deaths from that horrific act.
During the first 19 months of the AIDS epidemic, the same paper wrote 7 articles, with only 1 appearing on the front page and by the end of those 19 months, there had been 891 reported cases."
The numbers don't lie.
