Monday Morning Memento Mori

GC wishes Jade Goody no ill will whatever. So you can't blame me. The press coverage of her impending demise is both horrific and salutory. The British media just isn't set up to deal with the fact of someone alive, walking around and saying fatuous things and then suddenly not alive, walking around, or saying anything at all anymore.

She is definitely going to die, relatively soon. But you needn't feel too awful about it because with 154,162 cancer deaths in the UK annually, you might too.
