Amy Winehouse Assumes Room Temperature

Amy Winehouse finally was found dead today.
She didn't take off in America despite making a couple of really good albums (do they still call them albums?) that sold gangbusters in Europe. I think the record companies were afraid to spend the money here because she was such a train wreck. But she possessed a voice on a par with the great soul/pop artists like Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle. Talent with good looks and a hip/cool sort of dangerous image; that combination is worth a lot of money in the music business. But it wasn't to be.

Clearly government programs that should have helped her were underfunded. We need to learn from this and increase taxes on the wealthy before Lindsay Lohan ends up the same way.

Good heavens, who is that creature on the right? Those two can't possibly be the same person, are they?
