Re: Ms. Smith Goes to Washington

Okay, K-Lo teases that there has been no buzz in these quarters (as did Rick Brookhiser over at The Corner) about the argument yesterday before the Supreme Court involving the claims of Anna Nicole Smith to great piles of cash from her late husband’s estate. Well, herself did slip quietly into a seat at the back of the Court yesterday, it seems—”disappoint[ing] scores of photographers and TV cameramen who had gathered on the marble plaza in front of the court’s steps,” according to one account. But frankly, I can’t get too interested in the issues in the case. All about some intricacies of the intersection between state probate law and federal bankruptcy law. I think. Sort of. All readers still awake, please raise your hands . . . ZZZzzzzzz.
