Well done, CNN.

At this moment, the headline story on is Anna Nicole Smith's death. Relegated to smaller type over to the right are the following headlines:

"Palestinian talks yield power-sharing pact."

"Prosecution rests, Russert challenged in Libby trial."

"Hooded, dancing kidnappers show off hostages."

"Iran: We'd strike back at attacker."

None of these stories are more important than the fact that the inevitable has befallen Anna Nicole Smith? Did anyone actually think she was going to live to see gray hair? I would never wish her ill or anything, but doesn't her death seem somewhat less newsworthy than, I don't know...everything else that has happened in the news today?
