Not sure if any of you are aware of the circumstances behind the death of NYT report Anthony Shadid. To experience, go through and survive the events he had in order to report to the world what was happening in the middle east and then to end up dying as he did a couple weeks ago in Syria - tragic. The photographer that was with him when he died, today told of his last week of life.

Life is precious and short in the scheme of things...

What an absolute waste. What a loss of talent.
The links are abundant on Drudge Report tying to updates surrounding the death of Whitney Houston.
I can't help but think of Michael Jackson's death and others who were so talented and frittered it way over the use of drugs.
It was a horrible day the day she accepted her first date with the thug and loser Bobby Brown. No doubt she was attracted to the bad boy image when she was portrayed as clean and good. I believe it is the picture of what is the norm in life and that is the general rule (so of course there will be the odd - exception) - and that is the bad always drags down the good it is not the other way around. And when one has an upbringing of good and avoids the trappings of drugs and alcohol and then tips their toe in the way too deep in - when they get in it is overwhelming and traps them and drags them to the bottom.

Another subject matter dear to my heart that I SO want to write a book on is the Circle of Influence. The MJ, Whitney of the world and you & I are no different – the power for good or bad of our circle of influence. I think of Elvis, John Bonham, Phil Lynott, and so on…. If only they had a strong, moral circle of influence around them they would probably be here today and produced much more music, good memories, and so on. They would have had long relationships with their children and maybe even grandchildren…

What a tragic loss…

Rooney was 59 when he began on "60 Minutes" in July 1978 with an
essay about misleading reporting of automobile fatalities on the
Independence Day weekend. He became a regular contributor, delivering
sometimes folksy, sometimes peppery observations on ordinary life under
the title, "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney."

He had been hospitalized after suffering "serious complications" following minor surgery last month.

I hope you RIP.
I enjoyed your wit, humor and insight.
