Would be interesting to know the dates of those (cant make them out) to see how long they waited before those stories. Nowadays the papers normally have around 2 days of praise (if its a big star they like) and then its mud racking and scandal whilst monitoring their readers reaction to the news.

Very depressing. The media furore after a celebrity dies is always a bleak and nasty time to be reading the papers.
