So a short while ago my wife mentioned to me that Whitney Houston had died. "Well" sez I," I guess she treated herself poorly", and our conversation moved on.

Now I sit down to ATS to find what interesting things I might read about. And do you know what I found that was interesting to many here?

Eight posts dedicated to Whitney Houston dying in just the last two hours. Eight. And over 150 replies.

Well you can just add me to this list. Here is the ninth, that is unless another has sprung up while I was typing this.

RIP ATS

Edit. Change that to tenth. Another DID sneak in ahead of me.

Sorry, I just don't understand your point in starting this thread. I don't mean at all to be a jerk or anything like that, but I didn't see a point. I respected the woman's talent and all, and I am sorry that this has happened. I was just wondering what your stance was on this.

Were you making the point that a lot of people were starting threads about it? That's all I could get from it.

You mean 8 "threads"(?) have been started about Whitney? And that stuff just clogs the works for others who don't care, thus "RIP ATS"?

I get it.

I thought another recent death would bring more response than it did. But it didn't. Old people go way back machine, I guess.

Yep.
A pop star dies and I act moronically by posting one more thread about it.
Will I be the last? Just showing my bordonm with this place I guess.

Precisely. Just a short comment on the state of the site.

I understand that completely my friend... didn't mean to be at all disrespectful just wanted to understand your motivation. I have mixed feelings about it. I really don't care on the one hand, but it's still sad.

Uh huh. It seems we took a dumb down chat pill recently. Whenever I feel that way, I take a break. So far that is working. And out of boredom sometimes I begin research on the web thinking that I will generate a thread my self to change that. I have several WIP's right now. I've seen your work too. Don't lose all hope yet.

What's that famous, over-used line on ATS: "Nothing to see here, folks, move along now."
Sometimes it is true.If nothing else, it keeps the flow going, it shows that ATS is on the spot and not growing stagnant. Look below, another bit of info on her death perhaps worthy of discussion.

Did you see on another site just yesterday the dozen or so photos of her boozed or drugged up as she and friends exited a night club? The text along with the pics hammered her pretty badly. Maybe that pushed her over the edge. I was wondering as I saw the pics how those would really hurt her. Maybe they were a factor.

Are you trying to say "it's not right, but it's okay"? Sorry my brain isn't working too well this morning.

Dunno... maybe. I thought celebrities dig on press, any press as a career booster these days. If I am a struggling actor and my career needs a shot in the arm (no pun intended) then maybe I'll get drunk, take my Jag and bash a hole in a crowd of photographers.

Then again maybe she just had enough of the money always pouring in and the drug dealers hitting on her cell.

Poor girl. I know that I would have probably ended up there as well if I had been rich. But I went broke and the drugs ran out before they killed me. Thank God.

No, just saying that I wasn't a fan really, just think it's sad. I do admire her singing ability, just not my musical style that's all.
