Very sad, but not unexpected.

In reply to: Amy Winehouse---R.I.P.

It's shame that a person with a voice and talent like hers should die so young,

Her father said a couple of years ago how worried he was about her.

Sad.

It's a damned shame that 'sad, but no surprise' is as fitting an epitaph as any.

Sadly it is

In reply to: Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker...

especially if you are rich and/or famous and socialise in the right circles. "Right" of course, is a description, and not my assessment of their worthiness.

But I am betting you're right, this will be a heroin overdose.

And even more sad, IMO,

In reply to: Sadly it is

is when young children begin to imitate some of these people in dress and mannerisms...perhaps with the notion of developing themselves to enter careers which they can only see as glamorous. They don't see the cesspool that also awaits those who cannot keep their footing.
