I've been saying this a lot, but **** it: all schardenfreude (sp?) aside, there is not justice in cancer. I'm amazed by the sheer number of people who, unable to just enjoy watching a famous blonde die slowly for their amusement, have to reconcile their vicarious thrills with some notion that she brought it on herself. Whether or not we think she's awful, there's not really any situation where someone deserves cancer, and certainly no reason to think that if she hadn't been a fame-seeking money-grubbing, totally omg mega-racist ho-bag (which I don't really think she is) she'd have been spared.
I'm also dicked off with the ongoing insistence that she's been "rammed down our throats" by the media (she hasn't been rammed down mine, and I've made no real effort to avoid her), and that she is not being "dignified" (as if there's any dignity in pontificating to a cancer patient on how they should or should not live out the rest of their lives).
So yeah, that's my rant. I don't want to go all Chris Crocker about this, but this issue really seems to have brought the worst out in people. Am I the only one who remembers her being kind of funny to watch on TV about 6 years ago and didn't spend the intervening years storing up masses of bile to vent against her?
