E. Pierce Marshall dies at 67...

These stories hammer the idea of RE. Here is a man at 67 with all the money anyone could need and he dies of an infection.

Yeah and he spent the last 10 years fighting with that druggie bimbo Anna Nicole Smith over his father's estate.

When I opened that article, the first picture that came up was that of Anna Nicole Smith, not Marshall and half of the article talks about Smith.

Even when the guy dies, he can't shake off Anna Nicole.

Even at death he gets one last kick in the nuts.

Maybe she can go after some of his money

Crappy way to spend your last ten years.

Talk about balance. J. Howard Marshall has paid/will pay millions to Anna Nicole Smith for a couple of BJs.... And she wound up screwing E. Pierce Marshall. E. Pierce gets to die. Fade, credits, end of story.

Hey, if he was competent when he married her, it's a marriage, right? Between this one and Britney's multiple weddings it's a wonder I still support opposite gender marriage at all.
