Jacqueline who?

Police arrest 32 people over jewel heist

The Harry Winston chain provided jewels to Richard Burton for his wife Elizabeth Taylor and shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis bought an engagement ring there for former U.S. first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

It is really not newsworthy of the reporters to make reference to ‘celebrities’ people today wouldn’t know or care two hoots about.  Please.

Please tell me you’re joking. I realize Jackie Kennedy was no Kate Gosselin in the fame department, but she did get her name in the papers a few times: GBU Editor

The death of Michael Jackson leaves us a void that can not be filled. A genius, driven to madness by cheap and selfish reporters and critics. Are you happy now. Instead of enjoying the music of the man, these people drove him to insanity. He died at age 50, where people actually bloom and their real genius and God given gifts make their appearance. We killed this real man. Our narrow mindedness and cheapness drove Michael Jackson to insanity,but in my heart and of millions of others he remains well and alive through his music. He could have given us more but the greed and selfishness of man caused us the loss.

What a tool. There are plenty of us left who care about timeless celebrities; not the quick and cheap Britneys and Ashlees of today.

Aren’t there any news worthy of attention besides?
Leave the Kennedys and Onassis for Life mag and stick to pertinent news with a solid base on reality, please.
