A Column Debut: Random Bits of Truth
Welcome to my first column in a continuing series called “Random Bits of Truth.” Short, quick and easy-to-read opinions on what is headlining today.
Surprise, surprise Amy Winehouse has emphysema from living a life of smoking all kinds of hard drugs. This revelation was reported on Yahoo after being quoted by her father, Mitch Winehouse. Her father also allegedly stated that smoking the bad stuff not only will contribute to ruining her voice, but also can eventually “kill” her.
Well, Mr. Winehouse I am glad that you are finally standing up to what obviously has been ruining your daughter for a long time. Maybe perhaps you too can take the lead from Britney Spears’s parents and help your child before she actually kills herself.
Amy Winehouse may have a sultry and unusual voice. Her voice has been compared to some of the great vocalists of our time, but one look at Amy Winehouse and you know she has lived a long, rough life. After all she is only 24 and looks decades older and scarier than her biological age. Not to mention the great catch she made as a husband, who at the moment is serving time in jail.
I hope that Daddy Winehouse takes charge of his daughter and reins in her self-destructive lifestyle. She needs major rehab and we won’t take “No, no, no” for an answer.
I just want to take a moment to congratulate Jaime Lynn Spears on the birth of her daughter. Just think in 16 years, she too will have a 16 year old daughter and perhaps be a grandmother herself at 32! Amazing! If the pattern continues then at the ripe old age of 48, Ms. Spears will be a great-grandmother, At this rate she could be a great, great grandmother at 66 and a great, great, great……..well you get my point. Yuck!
According to Yahoo news, a photographer in Malibu was attempting to take pictures of Matthew McConaughey and some surfers allegedly threw his camera in the ocean. A shark’s camera being thrown to the sharks-I like it. Whatever, but it does look like the paparazzi are not especially popular in Malibu. I guess they want actors to have their privacy. But maybe if people would just quit buying the rag mags there would not be a market for the photographers. Oh my gosh, that makes sense and I am scaring myself.
Another Yahoo report states that to cope with the higher gas prices people are abandoning the suburbs and returning to the cities. Mass transportation in the cities is always plentiful. Also higher crime, more traffic, more congestion, more pollution, less space, more grime and it makes me want to rent a U-Haul today.
Those are my random bits of truth for today. The truth is tough to hear, but someone needs to stand up and speak it.
