Why? The Kennedy's? Joltin' Joe DiMaggio? Moving into her 40's?
I hardly think that whole maudlin "Candle in the Wind" shit is adequate to explain her ending.
But what difference does it make how well or poorly I, or Elton J., or anyone else understands it?
Dead is dead and as Buk phrased it, maybe the death of the good and the bad is equally sad.
So too, I'd submit, the famous and pretty and the rest of us although not so much so famous and pretty but who also like being alive, sometimes feel a little sad at the whole dead thing.
One thing we can be sure about, tears of blood are not solely possessed by saints and holy Mary's, mothers of gods.
Sometimes simple Norma Jean's get 'em too.
