One of the measures of a celebrity’s reputation is what others say after the person dies. If the buzz on the Internet from critics and the public is positive, then it’s safe to conclude the celebrity had a strong reputation. If it’s negative, then his or her reputation was flawed. In reading the media commentary after Phyllis Diller’s death, one sensed that people sincerely loved and admired her.

Shopping around for a home loan or mortgage will help you to get the best financing deal.
