  2. Now, you are a sweet guy. You're an honor to your kind. Which is that, by the way, white, gun-owning Christian, super responsible and squared away?

  4. Amy Winehouse had musical talent, and a talent for self-destruction.

    She received during her career an impressive 23 awards, including five grammys,(among them Best new artist, song of the year and album of the year in 2006).

    The most successful of her songs was Back To Black. I find her life tragic, through her own failings, but while I was never particularly a fan of her music, it most certainly is not accurate to say the woman was without talent.

    I am saddened whenever a person destroys their life or others; that she was a person of very real talent only makes this a greater loss.

    Perhaps your education was simply deficient, failing to include the literary works of John Donne that explains so eloquently why this is a loss to more than her immediate family and friends:

    "No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."

    You might want to look into some remedial education for those deficiencies of yours, in literature and the humanities. You clearly are in need of it.

  5. OK, I try to get away from it all for the weekend and the news is full of the right wing idiot in Norway and Amy Winehouse.

    Fortunately, I could turn off the radio.

    Amy Winehouse is a local girl.

    Not sure where this comment comes from "is a great example of the average leftist gun grabber..... a drugged out no talent looser.."

    Sheer gibberish.

    While I may not approve of her or her lifestyle, she did have talent. Tony Bennett had glowing words for her in the BBC interview.

    Not my personal taste in music, but I do have her album.

    Then again, I have most of Karlheinz Stockahusen's works as well.

    "looser," get it? Sometimes these hateful characters are funny without even meaning it.
