It's been a crap week anyway (I've been intermittently cleaning out a handful of message board accounts I've got no plans of ever using again); then, to cap it all off, I read this.

Why does this sort of crap always happen to the interesting people?

What's worse...

Is that not ONE of the radio stations or TV stations even squeaked a word about this. All Hayley Westenra has to do is fart and it's news...

Re: What's worse...

I'd never heard until I saw a random mention of it somewhere... either on a blog or somewhere on Wikipedia, this afternoon. WTF, TVNZ?

It was covered on TV3 News that night, a short item with a couple of sound bites and part of one of his videos. -ARJ

I probably didn't word it right I suppose... the people I consider "boring people" are the ones who, if anything happened to them, it would be all over the news for weeks. People like Paris Hilton, David Beckham, Britney Spears or Richard Worth (a local politician who has just decamped very rapidly from Parliament due to an inability to keep it in his pants).

I think the real lesson here is that this stuff happens to famous people, too.

I am however, sorry that someone who has contributed to your country's performing arts is this sick.
