Anna Nicole Smith, 1967-2007

As you may have heard, Anna Nicole Smith has died. When we started this blog in May of last year, we chose a photo by AP photographer Manuel Balce Ceneta of Anna shielding herself from photographers as she arrived at the U.S. Supreme Court as The Slug's banner. We thought she represented a deeply interesting intersection of pop culture, celebrity, news and entertainment, a dynamic topic we wanted to and will continue to explore within this blog. While Anna Nicole may be gone, we will always remember her truly American legacy.
