41. Well a nineteen year old girl can certainly be naive.
Edited on Fri Nov-04-05 09:43 PM by NNadir
I'm not saying that she was a bad person, but on the other hand she couldn't have been the brightest bulb on the block getting into that situation in the first place.

Many nineteen year olds, however, have far more sense. There were a zillion red flags in the whole deal.

But look, Diana, like her husband, was born into privilege and wealth and one supposes she could have - and perhaps should have - been a worse person. She certainly had more character than her husband, who has long been a pathetic twit with no real accomplishments. Diana certainly has more to recommend herself than say, Brittany Spears. It is probably mean spirited of me to have said what I said, but I have problems with the deification of people for no other reason than their birth and glamor.

Diana did a lot of good things, but she also lived high and did so in spite of having been in the direct personal presence of poverty and suffering. It's not like she ever showed any signs of walking away from privilege she did not really earn. That may be a lot to ask of anyone, but somehow the truly great spirits manage to do it. Diana may have been good, but she was not great.
