I have never even heard of Edie Sedgwick. Had to look that one up.
Not screw ups. Degenerates.
(I got two octogenarian parents still moving).
Hmm, falling from 15 to 8. For younger types, that's on the cusp of all but guaranteeing death.
For suiciding, a minimum of an 8 story fall is recommended.
What mystifies me is why nobody is talking about Trey Gowdy’s 2 investigators. Tasked with executing a congressional search warrant on a residence at the Clinton presidential library, they disappeared and were found in shallow graves 100 miles away some days later.
“So far so good” she said as she passed the 9th floor.
99% of all people die within six months of their birthday.
Did we quit when Germany bombed Pearl Harbor?"
They’re all screw ups. But they’re revered because they’re rich. Even though the money came from the old man bootlegging during Prohibition. And, they’re rank commies. Libs love commies.
It’s “jest.” Not “gest.” And don’t call me Shirley.
Assisted suicide, of course.
Probably because the story originated from lastlineofdefense, which is a satire/spoof site.
It’s actually quite funny, and it’s not intended to be real.
Baloney, for sure. I would believe 74%. He just switched the numbers. I live in a retirement community and we are considering the purchase of a plow or an earth mover just to keep our streets “Octojumper free!”
Oh. Never mind.
And I bet her team of highly capitalist lawyers have already cut the taxman's share down to something a poor little rich girl can almost get by on.
You mean like: “47% of old people jump up to their deaths every year.”??????
That was the 47% whose votes Mitt Romney knew he'd never get.
The sad fact is that Jean Stein looked down on her until the very end.
You know the old saying, the older they are the harder they fall.
She did movies with Andy Warhol that nobody watched.
She's mostly famous for coming from a rich, socially prominent family and dying young from and overdose.
Kyra Sedgwick, the actress married to Kevin Bacon, is a cousin, but she probably won't have a major book written about her.
