Peaches Geldof dead after recent Twitter controversy

Peaches Geldof post mortem 'inconclusive' pending drink and drugs tests results: Examination carried out this morning still leaves mystery surrounding death »

The death of the daughter of musician and campaigner Bob Geldof and late presenter Paula Yates, has so far been described by police as ‘sudden and unexplained’.
I didn’t post anything concerning this yesterday when news broke, but I have been reading as much as I could about it.. The demise of this girl, only 25 years of age and a mother of two beautiful children, is dead.. The death is being said to be “unexplained.” Inconclusive .. all of those mystery words that are somewhat reminiscent of the death of Brittany Murphy.. Drug and alcohol tests are still coming in Geldof’s passing.
The last time I heard any news about Peaches was in November 2013.. She became the subject of an investigation after she Tweeted the names of two mothers in the Ian Watkins case..  The Watkins matter is disturbing.. Lostprophets’ Ian Watkins was sentenced to 35 years for a series of child sex crimes including the rape of a baby.. Watkins said he did not successfully rape the 11-month-old but did admit to attempted rape. That sentencing was in December 2013.
But let’s flash back to November.. Peaches published the names of the mothers involved with Ian Watkins—the mothers who gave their babies to him to be raped. On Twitter, Peaches said that newspapers knowing the names of the women should print them—she then published the names herself but quickly deleted the Tweets .. One Tweet she posted prior to the release of names said that Watkins was a talentless musical hero and that the mothers were “equal in monstrosity.”   The release of the names set off a bitter debate online, and people took to defending Geldof for her right to tell. The amazing part—you know how they say ‘nothing ever vanishes from the internet once it’s printed? The tweet naming the two women vanished. Scrubbed.. like a bad page from 1984, there’s really no mention of it.. Nor is there a mention in the post-mortem summaries anything of Geldof’s insistence on naming the women who helped Watkins rape babies..
Peaches Geldof's final tweet
I find it strange—maybe purely coincidental—that just a few months after this awful story of Tweets and sentencing occurred, with Peaches being directly at the center of the firestorm, she’s not dead.. And dead at 25. And leaving two children behind—something I doubt she would have wanted to do given her love of her own mother and how much she missed her..
But strange things happen. As do coincidences..
Peaches is gone too soon. Judging from the honest and fiery tweets I read, she seemed to be a grounded and good person. 
And it’s those honest and grounded people who so often don’t live a full life these days.

WHAT THE FROCK! ABUSIVE PENNSYLVANIA PRIESTS AND THE BISHOPS TO HID THEM NOW REVEALED!

Put this in the true horror category..

I am from PA. I know several people in this report.. I may even know several abuse victims.

This is the end.

The death of the great tax exempt church..

The blue-haired bakers who love the block parties are dying away...

The truth--with all its sordid details of abusive priests, sex rings, and pedophilia--all now out.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”


The report begins with the followi…

It's over. Print dies: September VOGUE does not matter

It was once the biggest print magazine of the year..
They were the days..

NOW THIS, AS REPORTED BY Alexandra Steigrad:

Days before the issue hit newsstands, usually in early August, executives from Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour and W would brag about the thickness of their telephone book-sized glossies. They’d boast of the “thud” the issues made when dropped on a coffee table. The louder the thud, the more powerful the magazine.
Now that thud is more of a whimper.
“The September issue means nothing anymore,” said Sam Shahid, founder of branding, advertising and design agency Shahid & Company. “You used to hold that magazine in your hand. It takes you to a place — that’s what a magazine used to do. Now they are all doing the same thing. There’s no imagination there. It’s just pure product, it’s pleasing the advertiser.”
Shahid says a lack of funds at publishers, due to a decline in print circulation and ad revenue in the digital age, has led to a crazy scramble to attr…
