Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Return of "Jughead's Bride".

Is it just me or is this fascination with "Princess Di" ridiculous from the get-go?

The woman did some good by using her celebrity in the cause of outlawing land mines, okay. Other than that, what the heck is the big deal with her? She was a cute chick but she's dead, got it? D-E-A-D. Gonezo. Kaput. Long past the status of wormfood.

And during her life her celebrity status came from being married to the jugeared heir to the throne of England. Big frigging deal. In case it's escaped the notice of a lot of people, we had a war with that country a little over two hundred years ago that resulted in our discarding the royal class. Don't need 'em, don't want 'em. You can keep 'em.

I never got this whole "Princess Di" thing. So she got her 15 minutes of fame by screwing Jughead Charlie, so what?

Now they're celebrating the anniversary of her death. I'd be more interested if they brought back "Babylon 5".

Maybe it's just me.

I don't like all the stuff they show again and again about her on the tube or in the news, but she was not famous for being married to the price. She became famous, in her own right, because of the cause that she stood for, and because she went out amoing the people of England and the world to push for those causes, only one of which was a crusade against land mines of certain types. She did a lot of work for children's health causes, a lot of work for AIDS causes, and so on. I think the thing that people admire grreatly about her, was that despite being a royal, she often, in fact regularly, made contact with those who were not while at the same time championing their causes. That said though, I wish they would show some real news on the news!

All the best,
Glenn B

Actually, I can support all the same causes she did and no one would give a flip, much less any money. She earned her fame because she married a prince and it was at that time "such a Cinderella story"....She then later used that acquired fame to champion all those causes, with much publicity.

Bo, thanks for the comments. Nice to know I'm not the only one.

Glenn, thanks for stopping by. You're right, I stand corrected in saying she only helped the cause of getting landmines banned. She also pushed a lot of other causes by using her celebrity status. Having that status never caused her to lose "the common touch", which you also touched on.

My gripe isn't about Diana, maybe that point got lost. She was a decent, caring woman who saw an opportunity to use her public status for good and she did it. God bless her for that.

My heartburn comes from the genesis of that status, her marriage and life with a member of England's royal family. For this I blame the paparazzi who dogged her every move and gave us too much "news" that wasn't really news.

They literally hounded this woman to death and now keep on with the obscene coverage of her kid's lives. Who would give a fat rat's ass if those kids were the issue of any other woman? The newshounds disgust me with all of this. They did much the same with Jackie Kennedy/Onassis, Marilyn Monroe, etc.

They're bloodsucking ghouls and they're the ones I've really got a beef with. When France started investigating their role in her death I was happy, thought it gave a lot of attention to their obscene ways.

As for Diana, God rest her soul.
