...bless the beasts and children III

...what can I say?
I am not saying that drugs had anything to do with the devastating loss of unique, talented, pop iconic Amy Winehouse, the beehived soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, but I am truly saddened by the loss as she was found dead Saturday in her London home, police said. She was 27. "Everyone who was involved with Amy is shocked and devastated. Our thoughts are with her family and friends," said Chris Goodman, a spokesman for her publicity representatives. He said her family will issue a statement when they are ready.
The British singer's record label, Universal, confirmed her death.
"We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer," the statement read. "Our prayers go out to Amy's family, friends and fans at this difficult time."
Please add prayers to KK's cousin, who died last evening from a drug overdose. We were going to go to the beach and enjoy the hot sun, but instead, funeral arrangements must be made.
"Just say no!"
I wish that it were that easy.
