Anna Nicole – An Observation

Anna Nicole Smith died this afternoon. Death, especially early death, is tragic. I don’t wish to make light of that.

When I heard the news I had two immediate reactions.

  • Wow – what a surprise
  • I’m not surprised

Is it possible to be surprised and not surprised at the same time? I spoke with a co-worker over the phone and when I mentioned it, he said he had the very same reaction.

In any case, a tragic end to a tragic life.
