    Whitney Houston Dead

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, has died. She was 48.
    Publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unclear.

    I hated when her life took a wrong turn. She had some great music there for a while.

    Sad as it is to say, it wasn't entirely unexpected. In a very real way, she did it to herself.

    It's too bad that anyone ends up that way. Like so many others before her, and no doubt many that will follow, she was a victim of her fame.

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    OD or the results of drug abuse (weakened heart, etc) is my guess.

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    A crackhead dies and everyone mourns and does tributes.

    Cops, firefighters, and soldiers die and barely rate a news article.

    Fuck her and her crackhead husband.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    A voice like hers is a gift....she was able to breathe such fire into a song...I will never forget her National Anthem at the Superbowl.

    I once heard Amazing Grace sung at a police officer's funeral by a young woman with a similar gift. It sent shivers down my spine. That is how I felt listening to Whitney. When God gives suh a gift, it is ment to be used and loved by those who hear it. Doesn't matter how she died...she was one of God's favorites.

    I just listened to I will Always Love You again....The memories associated with that song...priceless.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
