I shook my head in sheer exasperation this morning when I read this article:

http://pagingdrgupta.blogs.cnn.com/2010/06/28/x-rays-of-marilyn-monroe-sold-for-45000/?hpt=Sbin

While I should have expected something like this, it still just disgusts me.  I know some people pride themselves on collecting the unusual souvenirs from celebrities of past and present, but…… REALLY?  The woman’s x-ray????

Julien’s Auctions sold other strange items from some of Marilyn Monroe’s last years.  Again… where are the proceeds going for all of these pieces from her estate?  And WHY do they feel the need to pick apart her past like vultures????

Greed is really an ugly thing, ladies and gentlemen.

End of rant.
