Well, Whitney Houston is dead. Yes, she joins a long line of artists that we all feel went on to the great beyond well before their time, along with Elvis, Hendrix, Joplin, Holly, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and many others. She had a voice like no other and there is no doubt her passing is a great loss for the music world and the people that loved her.
It really irritates me when I listen to the SPECULATION on the news channels about her death, and of course I already hear blame for her EVIL DOCTORS that must have prescribed the fatal overdose of medicine for her.
Of course at this point none of the facts have been revealed. You know, she was 48 years old. People this age do indeed die of natural causes such as heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary emboli. It happens and if this turns out to be the case, won't there be a bunch of egg on the face of the news media?
No doubt she had many problems with drugs and alcohol but we certainly don't know if this was the reason for her death. I'm willing to just leave things alone and wait for the facts and hope she is at peace in a better place.
