“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
It's sad. She was so incredibly talented. The talented ones always leave us too soon.
I wasn't really a fan of her music, but I hope she was able to find peace before she died. Many people who abuse drugs and alcohol have deep depression or emotional issues. We can only speculate some of the things she was going through, but I do hope that she found peace. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse.

I will miss Amy Winehouse's music, which was awesome! Like so many other young singers, she died a tragic death. Her demons got the best of her.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
"True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
I'm quite envious of my little sister who got to see her Tonight Show performance live. I'm typically not a fan of that type of music, but she just had a voice that you couldn't ignore. I wasn't really a Winehouse fan, but I did love "Rehab".
I just don't have a ton of sympathy for people like this.
Yeah she had a great talent.
But as a person I doubt I would have wanted to deal with her.
One time working on a music video the entire production was held up for hours. Because the lead singer of the band met a chick the night before and dropped acid with her. And I just thought to myself, "you little dumbass punk. Not only are you screwing up an opportunity most people just dream of you are also screwing with all our (the production crew) lives and wasting a ton of money."
