Sign of the Apocalypse #20: Anna Nicole Smith goes to Washington

Ah, the Supreme Court. The locus of gravitas in the federal government. Why not open its doors to the personification of trash? Yes, Anna Nicole Smith will have yet another day in court, the highest court in the land:

The Supreme Court shed its staid image Tuesday, giving stripper-turned Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith a new chance at a piece of the fortune of her 90-year-old late husband.

The court said it would hear arguments early next year as part of Smith's effort to collect as much as $474 million from the estate of J. Howard Marshall II. The oil tycoon married her in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26...

At issue for the court is a relatively mundane technical issue: when may federal courts hear claims that are also involved state probate proceedings. But the facts are eye-catching.

The 1993 Playmate of the Year and self-described "blonde bombshell" claims her husband promised her millions but that his scheming son cut her out of the estate.

Gimme an A!
Gimme a P!
Gimme an O!
Gimme a C!

You know the rest.
