Huffpo’s ‘Too-Short’ Thinking of a Headline

huffobrit.pngBrittany Murphy died tragically yesterday from causes that will be determined today at her autopsy. She was 32 years old. Her Hollywood career was launched nearly 20 years ago in 1991. She was, what we could call a child actor – a teenager. And so, Huffpo’s headline for their photo memorial? “Her too-short career”?! Really? Not her too-short life? Her career? Lasting a vast majority of her short life?

Skirts are too-short. Romances are too-short. And Huffpo’s pondering if a title is off-putting is clearly too-short.
