The Economist, yes THE Economist featured Anna Nicole in their obit. section today. It's impressive.
"Within three days last September she had a daughter, Dannielynn, by
no certain father, and lost her son Daniel, at 20, to an accidental
overdose of methadone and anti-depressants. Five months later she was
dead herself, of causes still unknown, after collapsing in her hotel
room at an Indian casino in Hollywood, Florida. She was far from the
real Hollywood; yet not so far, in her young, lonely death, from the
great name she had most longed to be."
Smith was the widow of Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, whom she married in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26. She had been fighting his family over his fortune since his death in 1995.
