The aetiology of cancer, probability and the sheer number of celebrities should make the story of Jade Goody unsurprising. But it is. Also, she is going to sell her wedding and death to provide for her children, a move with which one cannot argue even though it makes one uneasy. Why? Because, I think, it seems to sustain the idea of the pursuit of fame as the answer to all life's problems, even death.
