Amy Winehouse

I can't really claim to have been a fan though I recognized a good voice and an appealing stylist in her. Of course, the world recognized a tortured soul though it was often easier (given comments and gossip, etc) to deride her failings than feel any better emotions for her.

I don't know anything about her personally - didn't follow the stories except to know there were stories. Don't even know how she died though everyone will suspect overdose - but intentional? Unintentional? Hard to say unless police find a note.

Allow me a moment of pomposity.

The world lost more than a talented young woman. It lost a chance to be kind to someone who desperately needed it. What an opportunity has gone by.

That sums it up precisely. Someone should have helped her while there was still time. Instead they threw her in jail and wrote nasty stories about her.

Come on. Obviously none of you have known people who are not willing to accept love. What do we do? Just grovel at their feet until they "get it"? No. We kick the dust of our sandels, move on, and let the dead bury the dead.
