Yeah, I had a couple of wacky ideas following the accident, one being
that the deaths could have been staged, Dodi and Di escaping to spend
the rest of their natural lives in quiet anonymity somewhere in the South
The other being the following prediction: there willbe a cult of
personality around Diana that will rival that around Elvis. There
will be sightings, people will claim miraculous cures due to her
intercession, there will be chapels and rituals...
Today, on NPR, a Toronto based 'expert' on media personalities
predicted her image would probably eclipse any previous 'dead'
personality image. It was a serious discussion. He pointed out
the necessary factors: youth, fame, glamor, and an early death
before the image tarnishes and age sets in. John Lennon, Marilyn
Monroe, etc. were mentioned in the discussion.
