Notes From The Bottom Of The Barrel

Osama bin Laden's niece to star in reality TV show

Sure, as the article says, she's dropped the infamous surname, but nevertheless she apparently has no compunctions about cashing in on it. Would any TV network be even remotely interested in "her as-yet unfulfilled 'quest for stardom'," would any men's magazine ever have asked to pose in its pages if she weren't a distant relative of the world's leading terrorist and murderer? The old Magic 8-Ball sayeth,"Are you freakin' kidding, buster?" Of course not.
Frankly, using the deaths of thousands of innocents on 9/11, as well as before and since, to get your fifteen minutes of fame is beyond crass; it's sick.
