Whitney Houston Dead at Age 48

February 11, 2012

Whitney Houston, who was probably regarded as one of the greatest pop singers of all time until drug use and erratic behavior led to a decline in her career, has died at the age of 48.

Anyone my age grew up with Whitney Houston. I may not have been her biggest fan, but her music was a part of my adolescence. School dances…etc. I mean “The Bodyguard” and her remake of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”. What a talent who will be surely be missed!

Not sure what else there is to say…I’ll leave you with probably the greatest National Anthem of all time at the Super Bowl:

From CBS News:

Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown.

News of Houston’s death came on the eve of music’s biggest night — the Grammy Awards. It’s a showcase where she once reigned, and her death was sure to case a heavy pall on Sunday’s ceremony. Houston’s longtime mentor Clive Davis was to hold his annual concert and dinner Saturday; it was unclear if it was going to go forward.

Casey Anthony Trial Leads to Potential “Caylee’s Law” in Michigan

February 10, 2012

The Casey Anthony trial has prompted a proposed bill in Michigan that would make it a crime to lie or give misleading information to police officials during a criminal investigation.

From MLive:

Michigan prosecutors asked lawmakers to craft the law, said the bills’ sponsor, Rep. John Walsh, R-Livonia. More people have been willing to lie to police, and the law would give law enforcement one more tool to help fight crime, he said.

“It’s a level of disrespect for our police officers and our criminal justice system,” said Walsh. “This will send a very strong message that if you are going to speak to a police officer about a crime you’ve witnessed, you better tell the truth.”

Casey Anthony: Objections to Release of Audio Recordings

February 10, 2012

Casey Anthony’s lawyers have filed a formal objection to the request by attorneys for Zenaida Gonzalez to produce the audio recordings mentioned in Anthony’s video diary.

From the Chicago Tribune:

Her attorneys object to the request because it “is vague, confusing, over broad, irrelevant, unduly burdensome, intended to harass, not reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence, an invasion of privacy, and seeks confidential and/or otherwise privileged information.”

The objection notes that Anthony again asserts her privilege against self incrimination.

The objection was filed by her attorneys with the court Tuesday in the defamation case.

I’m Still Here….

February 4, 2012

Once again…it’s been a very busy couple of weeks.

On January 17, I left my job of nearly 5 1/2 years for a new start. Unfortunately, I’ve been so wrapped up in moving and learning my new position that I haven’t had much time to update the site. Hopefully this will change in the coming weeks!

Until then. Be excellent to each other!!!
