Quick Question

Why is Jonbenet Ramsey now the poster child for a walk against diabetes?

Yes, I'm going to hell, but we already knew that, didn't we?

Glad to know I'm not the only one who thought that.

Jon Benet had much better airbrushing done on her photos.

That child does not have nearly enough makeup on her face and actually could be mistaken for a kid. She can't possibly be compared to Jon Benet.

Well, her parents probably own the rights to her image. There's probably no legal reason they couldn't let people continue to use it for their ad campaigns, for a reasonable fee of course....

Some of your daily readers aren't Merkins. Care to explain?

Thanks Ryan, that clears it up nicely. I remember this story breaking while I was still in the UK, and from fuzzy memory they strongly implied that the parents did it. It's sad, but it's also a potent illustration of everything that's wrong with contemporary journalism.

Oh yes, and you're going to hell. Die-of-beatings?
