The irregular quote of the day

23 Mar

Richard Herring on the death of Jade Goody ::

It is of course terribly sad and tragic and unfair that she has died, yet the hysterical and hypocritical reaction of the press which once or twice in the past have pretty much called for her piggy head to be stuck up on a spike, is something to behold.

On one hand it is ludicrous to compare her to Princess Diana and yet on the other there is probably no more apt parallel. They were both vilified by the media that they openly courted and both might end up practically canonised in death.

Amen.

    Death is always sad. Sometimes it is tragic. But why is it unfair? It comes to us all some time or other. What’s unfair about that?
