Anna Nicole Saga Continues

The sad saga of the life and death of Anna Nicole Smith continues in the news. I can't seem to turn on a television news show without it popping up at least within the first 10 minutes.

Why so much coverage of this accidentally famous woman, and how do we explain it all, as well as her, to our kids? How do we explain so much of the media's fascination with scandal and tragedy, as well as the public's insatiable appetite for it?

Well, here we go again! Something else we have no idea how to explain to our children -- the Tragedy at Virginia College -- How do we talk to our children about this??

I know. It really started for my kids with the Oklahoma City tragedy. Then came 911, Columbine, other shootings across the country, particularly the south. How do we explain evil in the world?
