That's $229.5 million per... Who says silicone is harmful? I'm tempted now to go get some myself.

Indeed. I wonder if she'll marry me, now.

She doesn't have to marry for money, anymore... :-)

I used to think the whole concept of marrying for money was some kind of terribly mercenary mangling of the institution of love, but (and it's not because of this - well, maybe a little) I kind of think of it now as a form of prostitution where Anna Nicole Smith (in this case) gets a really good price for her services.

Even if she's little more than a whore with one extremely rich client, is that such a bad thing? (Granted, half a billion dollars for 14 months' work is phenomenal, but -- whatever.)

Does anyone believe that there was really love between the old fart and the Playmate?

does it matter? if both of them, under no illusions, got what they wanted?

it used to be that girls were married off by their parents in order to cement alliances and the like. at least she got to make her own choice in the matter....

True enough. I wasn't saying they shouldn't have gotten married, or even that she shouldn't get the $$$. It's just that... I don't know, I've never been married, and I'm wondering what the purpose of marriage in general is, aside from mutual (financial, possession-issue oriented) benefit.

This marriage seemed like the most clear-cut win-win marriage of all, and that bothers the romantic in me, on a level I'm not eloquent enough to explain properly.

I'll get over it, but -- I have to get over it.
