Peaches Geldof dies unexpectedly at age 25
Associated Press, by Sylvia Hui

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/7/2014 2:44:12 PM

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Article mentions that her mother OD´d in 2000.
Wouldn´t be surprised if that somehow played into this.
Sad when anyone that dies that young.....especially since she herself has two very young children.

Very sad for the family. I hope it wasn´t drug related, but it doesn´t matter. The pain will never go away for them.

Bob Geldoff is one of the few people in the entertainment industry willing to give GW Bush props for his work against AIDS in Africa. I think he is probably a decent guy.

This young woman was famous for being famous, and each time she was photographed intoxicated out on the town, or nearly naked and whacked out on heroin with a one-night-stand, she´d get free publicity in the newspapers. No stigma to "wild" behavior, and in fact it´s very much encouraged with these media-manufactured celebrities, as it keeps them in the public eye. Awful for someone to die young (and leave children behind), but you have to wonder at what behaviors lead to such a demise.

Because they spoke the truth and got parole.

First time I ever heard of this girl was a story in the British media about her getting tattoos and how it might have been something her father wasn´t too happy about. IMHO, tattoos are a sure sign of self destructive tendencies. I remember thinking at the time that this wasn´t going to turn out well. I don´t take any pleasure in being correct (again).

Second post, but I just noticed in the Daily Mail (which doesn´t give Peaches as much coverage as it does the collective Kardashian drove but perhaps more than any of the individual sows by themselves) a photo of a "private ambulance" at the home to remove the body. Is this what the rich in England pay to use instead of whatever conveyance the NHS might be able to belatedly muster up in response to an emergency?

I have never heard of this young woman, but I truly believe that extolling a child´s wildness and being bonkers is a recipe for disaster. Especially when that child is 25. Was 25.

Wild children who are bonkers often have addictions that do them in. While their "parents" say "aren´t they cute?"...

"Cantaloupe," #5? No such luck. Her sisters are Fifi and Pixie, and her half-sister is Tiger, and her two little sons -- that is, male children -- are Astala and Phaedra.

Correction #20. Ms Geldoff was married. Her husband issued a statement that he was devastated by her loss and would raise the children ´with their mother in their hearts everyday´.

There is nothing humorous about any of this regardless of this young woman´s circumstances. Those who have chosen to be glib should be ashamed.

Prayers for her family.

Bill Ayers’ recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program appears to be part of a systematic campaign to whitewash the activities of the communist terrorists who were murdering policemen and FBI agents during the 1960s and 70s, and to set the stage for their release and rehabilitation. Kelly was unprepared for the interview and failed to consult prominent experts on the case, such as former FBI agent Max Noel. “I’m extremely disappointed, as are a number of us who actually worked the WUO [Weather Underground Organization] case on a daily basis, in your attempt to ‘confront him’ without availing yourself

Tomorrow is the deadline for the public to comment on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) attempt to regulate the Internet under the seemingly innocuous moniker of “net neutrality.” The architect of this movement, and the man who coined the term “net neutrality,” is Columbia law professor Tim Wu. Unfortunately, he has proved to be immensely influential among regulators. Net neutrality rules have been sold for a decade as a way to keep the Internet “open and free” by keeping Internet service providers (ISPs), such as phone and cable companies, from blocking or degrading Web sites. Its advocates have argued that ISPs

PART 1: FADING HOPES Three months after its schoolgirls vanished into the clutches of Boko Haram militants, Chibok has become the town that never sleeps. For the mothers of those missing from this dusty northern Nigerian town, nightfall is a time when rest proves impossible, when three hours of fitful dozing is the most one can hope for. And for the fathers, it is a time for round the-clock-vigils, patrolling the edges of town in case of yet more attacks. With Nigerian security forces now belatedly stationed around Chibok, there should be no need for neighbourhood watch duty. Yet two weeks ago,

Last weekend, The Washington Post published a story I wrote with Julie Tate and Ashkan Soltani about National Security Agency surveillance that sweeps in the conversations of people who are not foreign “targets.” The story, based on 160,000 intercepted communications I received from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, has provoked a lot of questions, objections, and, I think, misunderstandings. Some readers and commentators have described the story as an overheated statement of the obvious: that surveillance of one person includes the content of people who talk to him. Others have said The Washington Post, not the government, invaded the privacy

Obamacare could take another spin in front of the Supreme Court – with vastly uncertain consequences. Harvard legal scholar Laurence H. Tribe warned Tuesday of a “very high risk” that a crucial aspect of Obamacare – its government subsidies provision – could fall victim to a major legal challenge being mounted by conservatives. That is why, he also said, that the Supreme Court will almost certainly get “a second bite of the apple” in determining the fate of President Obama’s signature health law, with uncertain consequences.

At a press conference last night, President Obama placed the blame for the border crisis on Republicans, saying that because they are trying to block his $3.8 billion supplemental appropriation, they are responsible for the mess. He further stated that passage of his immigration reform bill would solve the border crisis for 20 years. Daily Caller: The Republican Party, but not the White House, has the power to block the flood of at least 100,000 migrants from Central America, President Barack Obama repeatedly told the nation in a Wednesday night press conference. “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.
