“Never a fan of her music but she was an awesome talent that few will ever be able to match imho.
Considering her drug use in the past I cant say I'm surprised that she died so young and I would bet it will be Heart Failure that killed her. Corey Haim instantly sprang to mind when I saw the news of her passing.”
“No ill will intended on my end but, I guess I should have worded it so there is zero doubt as to what I was trying to say. I don't think he should he be locked away form public view but if he didn't own and produce the broadcast I doubt the networks would have him speaking on TV at this point.
I'm sure he was enjoying himself and that's great but that doesn't mean he is still appealing to watch and isn't repulsive to some viewers. Looking like a wax figure and almost needing closed caption to understand what he is saying doesn't make for good TV no matter how much empathy you have for the guy.”
“Ok so because I found Dick Clarks present condition shocking and sad I want him banished form the world ? Sorry to burst your bubble but If that is how I felt I would have said it. I wish the guy all the best and always have.”

“candycab, in your own words you said:" Dick Clark was horrifying and sad at the same time. He needs to go enjoy life while he still can." Now you may have meant what you are saying above, but it came out sounding like you want him to hide. BTW, he was enjoying life.”
“She just came off as dumber than last time I saw her speak on TV and looking a bit more creepy as the years pass, her days in the limelight are long gone for good reason. The whole broadcast was kinda lame and Dick Clark was horrifying and sad at the same time. He needs to go enjoy life while he still can.”

“candycab, i just hope and pray that you never have to suffer a debilitating illness. In the event that you do, I hope that your family doesn't hide you away like a dirty little secret like you seem to want for Dick Clark.”

“"He needs to go enjoy life"??? WTH do you think he was doing hanging out on the stage in Times Square for New Year's eve, the biggest party of the year?”
“It's hard to imagine people watch her show and agree with her views. Seems like she reaches a new level of Scumbaggery every time she covers a big story like this. Celebrity deaths are always way to overblown imho. It sickens me that most in our society immediately assume that someone needs to be punished for everything that happens.
I guess that's what we get when no one wants take responsibility for themselves ?”

“This is all pointless unless we address our current sentencing laws. Something has to change because all we are doing is warehousing and dehumanizing inmates, 85% of whom will be released back into our population at some point.”
“We will be seeing these types of things for the next few decades. There is now a specially formed Federal Court to deal exclusively with our current Vetrans.
I recently saw a documentry about PSTD related crime on IFC that talkes a lot about it.”
