Shouldn’t Real Heroes Receive Honor Too?

by lewwaters

Once again we are approaching the end of another year. As usual, we are treated to a remembrance of so-called celebrities who have passed away during the year. Celebrities that produced movies, acted in or starred in them, singers, songwriters, book authors, and the whole gamut of those who entertain us or otherwise make millions of dollars creating fantasies for us to lose ourselves in.

The Seattle PI gives us 40 Celebrity Deaths for 2010, containing such names as, Teddy Pendergrass, Jean Simmons, J.D. Salinger, Peter Graves, Robert Culp, Lynn Redgrave, Lena Horne, Art Linkletter, Patricia Neal, Tony Curtis and many more.

Seattle Times: Jaime Herrera takes husband’s name, belatedly

Speculation on the why of the sudden announcement is, naturally, all over the board. But one that no one seems to have mentioned nor entered my own mind, is if she is pregnant. I mention it now due to an email I just received from a Republican PCO that said,

“re Jaimie…do not be too hard on her just now. Maybe I am dead wrong, BUT, photos, her appearance at our PCO meeting and her change of name may or may not point to a possible pregnancy. I am sure she would want her son or daughter to have her husband’s name etc.”
