    The sudden and unexpected death of Whitney Houston came as a shock last night about twenty-four hours before the Grammy awards show tonight. Her extraordinary voice is now silenced and we can only enjoy her remarkable talents on recordings and the videos of her two films. Her producer and mentor, Clive Davis called her his instrument because he loved ballads and she could deliver on them better than anyone. She will be missed.

      Bob,
      I was shocked when I read it on the computer last night. Her voice was extraordinary, and I played her first album until it wore out.

      I felt sorrow for the loss and the waste.

  2. Hedley Says:

    I was sitting in the end zone where Scott Norwood was to miss that field goal. The gulf war had started, Superbowl XXV was about to, the huge gunship helicopters had flown over and then Whitney Houston sang the National Anthem. The stadium exploded and that was her moment.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I will never forget that moment or that voice ever.

      • Hedley Says:

        I saw the second tour in the late 80s out at what was then Pine Knob. I think it’s fair to say that the Superbowl was it.
        Sadly, it’s been a long time since Whitney was relevant, for all the obvious reasons, but she will be remembered with fondness.

    Whitney was a wonderful singer, but I wish the networks would spend as much if not more time on the deaths of more relevant people, like those who are dying in foreign wars everyday.

    Apparently it was another one of those overdoses of prescription pills, controlled by the victim. Those in foreign wars don’t have that kind of control over their lives.

      Bill,
      I suspect that stories of soldiers don’t draw the huge numbers of people who adore celebrities or singers or actors. They feel a connection as they see or hear them often.

      The networks are for profit and that drives their stories.

      • Bill S. Says:

        I understand what you are saying. I just think it’s a sad commentary on what Americans value in our society.

  4. katry Says:

    Bill,
    I have thought for a long time that Americans have a strange sense of what’s important.
