As we mentioned yesterday, victorious Supreme Court litigant Anna Nicole Smith has passed away. She was 39, and the circumstances of her death are still being investigated. Here were some of your comments:
“ANS, we’ll miss you. We celebrate your reunion with your son, and we mourn your separation from your newborn daughter. Thanks for showing us all that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself.”
“I feel so bad about the fact that there is a little baby with no mom.”
“This is our Princess Di, people!”
By email, we received this interesting news:
Anna Nicole Smith’s late husband, J. Howard Marshall, was a big donor to Yale Law School [where he once served as assistant dean and taught Trusts and Estates].
When he died, and it immediately became clear that there would be a dispute over the estate, there was an internal debate whether Yale Law Dean Tony Kronman should attend both of the dueling memorial services — the staid family affair, and the one featuring Anna Nicole Smith spilling out of her dress and singing “Wind Beneath My Wings.” I believe he only went to the former.
Also, there is a great picture of the happy couple from around the time of their engagement or marriage. He looks old and frail but has the biggest s***-eating grin you have ever seen.
We think we’ve found that photograph. Is this the right one?
