Man, I could think of many more things to do with $45,000 than buy some bimbo’s chest X-rays.

No kidd’n. I’d rather just BUY a bimbo with major league yabbos and make my own x-rays.

_________________________________________________

November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:

"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
http://www.wintersoldier.com/index.php?topic=Timeline

Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but it's mutiny, and they have every right." --Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."

She went to the doctor because she caught a chest cold and it didn’t want to leave.

Marilyn was pleased that her doctor was so thorough as to x-ray her chest when she came in with a hangnail.

I wonder how much a copy of Obama's birth certificate would fetch at auction.

Did the state release these x-rays to the public or did Monroe during her life? If not I view this as a violation of the doctor-patient confidentiality.

That already happened when the details of her autopsy and gurney photos were released ages ago.

Raquel Welch was so much hotter than Marilyn Monroe. IMHO

Even if she's dead? Guess ACORN could still register her to vote, so you might be on to something here.

I always loved Marilyn and was brokenhearted when she died so young, with her whole career in front of her. I think that she was a great actress who should have been allowed to prove it, but most people couldn’t get past her obvious assets.

That is gross. I guess one difference is that the doctor (and whoever inherited his practice) had a doctor-patient relationship. Does the coroner? I am sure disclosure laws are in place, but is it a violation of confidentiality with regards to the patient (being their never was a patient)?

Unfortunately, one of the reasons she didn't get more work was because she was difficult to work with. Not "I'm a diva" difficult for the most part but her personal problems (and some physical illnesses, like a virus that smacked her around on her final film, Something's Got To Give) were greatly affecting her ability to work and she often showed up hours late to shoots even when she was healthy.

Yes, you’re right. She certainly had self-esteem problems that were a big part of her difficulties. But still, beneath all that was a great actress. She needed some help, but she really never got any because her behavior alienated so many who might otherwise have been sympathetic.

Some of today’s actors are in the same situation, and it’s very sad to see them crash and burn.
