Whitney Houston

Cause of death finally released after what, six, seven weeks? Normally doesn't take that long to run a drug screen, and is anybody surprised that the verdict was, Houston was on assorted drugs, including the Devil's Dandruff, and fell face-down into the bathtub and drowned?

A shame and a waste, yes. A tragedy. A surprise? No.

If you had a choice, would you rather smoke crack and drown in a tub, or eat banana-peanut-butter sandwiches and die on the toilet?

I ran this past some guys who've smoked crack, and they agreed the first is better.

If I had a choice -- and I do -- I'd choose C) Neither of the above.

Did you run it past guys who eat peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches and who own drugstores? Who can choose any kind of pill they want?

Tragedy -- in the classical sense -- happens because of something the protagonist of a story does that results in his or her own downfall. Usually a defect in character.

When a person with great talent and barrels of money does something that causes his or her death because they made a bad choice? It's not like being hit by a bus that jumped the curb.

Elvis's death was tragic. So was Whitney's. But they made the choice.
