Peaches Geldof was found dead in her home a few weeks ago, an otherwise perfectly healthy 20-something mom with no clues save for her strongly rumored acquaintance with drugs and a mother who died herself at 40 from heroin overdose. News reports had to call it s sad mystery and under investigation and refused to speculate on what everybody knew to be true. Somewhere between refusing to state the obvious and simply stating the completely unfounded, there's some happy middle ground nobody in print or TV journalism seems to want to find. I'm not sure why the mainstream media are such utter pussies, but it probably is playing some factor in their demise. Oh, yes, please, I'd like a subscription for three more years to Politically Correct Pussy News. Can your Megan's Law driver please throw that rag in the only wet spot in my driveway. Anyhow, surprise, it was heroin for the mom of two little kids. Technically, they're saying, heroin 'played a role' in her death. You know, like the bus played a part in your death when it hit you at 40mph. More couching. Let it go. She was an adult. She did deadly drugs. She's dead. Report the fucking news and tell us where the best yard sales are this weekend.
