This is from a gossip list I am on:

quote:
Mr & Mrs Godfather
Muscling in for Brangelina

Journalists in Namibia covering the birth
of the new messiah, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt,
are being subjected to harrassment, intimidation
and threats. One journalist who was suspected
of leaking the scoop that Angelina had given
birth has been followed by a local heavy for
days. She noticed a man hanging around her
house, following her everywhere, so she went
to the police. On her return to her house the
man knocked on her door, introducing
himself with the chilling phrase, "I am not
a psychopath or a killer, but...", before
telling the stringer that he'd been hired
to scare her: give her "a taste of her own
medicine". What's even more galling is that
the journalist was entirely innocent of
being the leak. That award goes to an
enterprising American female reporter who
managed to check into the Cottage Medi-
Clinic in Swakopmund, and shagged one of
the doctors in order to get the scoop.

(FYI: Poor baby, how long will it be at school
before Shiloh Pitt gets nicknamed Piloh Shitt?)

The name makes me think of the battle of Shiloh in the first US Civil war. I'd wouldn't name a kid that.

I've no particular thoughts about the Jolie-Pitt child, but I'm intrigued by the phrase "first US Civil war." When did the second one start? With the re-election of the Shrub? The civil rights movement? The bitter (at least on Berry's side), better-decide-which-side-you're-on Elvis/Chuck Berry rivalry, maybe?

Wasn't it in the year 2024, in Sanctuary District A?

That was just the Bell Riots, I don't think it escalated into a full out civil war.

At least Brangelina have been able to knock deader than door knob celebrities like the Simpson sisters and Paris Hilton out of the celebrity pages (Jolie is a roving UN ambassador you know, and Brad, well, Brad is pretty cool -- his turn in 12 Monkeys is unforgettable).

As for intimidating journalists, I guess that's why they donated over $300,000 to the Hospital in which Shiloh was born in and addition monies to surrounding clinics. The Namibian government is also really deliriously happy that they have attracted so much positive attention to the country.

Okay, no, really? They named the poor kid "Brangelina"?

Edit: Oh, never mind, I don't know how I missed "Shiloh". Well, that's not too bad. Sounds perfectly lovely after thinking for a few minutes that they named her "Brangelina".

Interesting tidbit about Shiloh I ran across in a book I had just happened to pull of my shelf.

While Shiloh means "place of peace" in Hebrew, it is also the name of the Messiah expected by followers of Joanna Southcott, a 18th-19th century English mystic and prophetess. Supposedly, she died while pregnant in 1814 before he was to be born, so her followers thus believed that he had ascended into heaven with his mother.

Southcott believed she was the "woman in the wilderness" bearing the future King of Kings from Revelations, which puts a whole new spin on Angelina's choice of Namibia to have her child. However, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is a girl, and not a boy, but that would certainly throw the Devil off in his desparate search for the child??!

His own son is coming tomorrow 6-6-06!!!

Right, keep forgetting. I'm not well up on my USian history. Though I understand some historians date the start, unofficially, to the Tipper Gore/Kinky Friedman Democratic-ticket fiasco of 2012.
