Anna Nicole Smith and Howard K. Stern in Oct. 2000. (AP) On Thursday a jury convicted Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole Smith's longtime lawyer/boyfriend, of consipring to help Smith obtain illegal substances by fraud and giving a false name for a prescription. Smith's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, was also found guilty on conspiracy charges and, according to the Associated Press, "convicted on two separate counts of unlawfully prescibing and obtaining Vicodin through fraud and use of a false name."

Anna Nicole's Paper Trail

In some random episode of "The Simpsons" from years ago Homer is watching a reasonable facsimile of "Married With Children" in which the punch line of every scene is the Al Bundy character reaching over and flushing a toilet. Doing its usual bang-up job of distilling popular culture down to its essence, "The Simpsons" is helping us to understand that the particular genius of at least one sitcom is nothing more than potty humor. To quote Homer: It's funny 'cause it's true. (AP) It was this image of a flushing toilet that came back to me when I was looking through wire photos related to the Anna Nicole Smith story. I came across the photo you see to the right, described in its wire service caption (and I paraphrase) as a roll of toilet paper from a suite at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino similar to the one...

Comment Box: Why Is Anna Nicole Front Page News?

Why is this front page news? No impact on our lives at all. Much like Princess Diana. As nice as she was... I really did not care. Moving on... -- MediaHound Well, you've asked it so I guess I have to try to answer, though I think the answer may involve pop psychology 101, voyeurism, a celebrity-obsessed culture and plain old human nature.

Times' Tim Rutten (registration required), as mentioned this morning by Howard Kurtz, describes the wall-to-wall coverage of Smith's death as a response to media expectations -- after all, both Princess Diana and O.J. Simpson pushed our threshold for tabloid crossovers to a new level. But he also offers this more basic explanation: "Americans have a hard time abiding a...
