Sinead O'Connor hospitalized, days after teenage son's death


" (CNN)Sinéad O'Connor has been admitted to the hospital, one week after her 17-year-old son was found dead.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer told fans on Thursday night that she was heading to hospital to receive help after sharing in a series of disturbing Twitter posts that she planned to take her own life.
"I've decided to follow my son. There is no point living without him. Everything I touch, I ruin. I only stayed for him. And now he's gone," she wrote on an unverified Twitter account linked to her official account."

Why is anyone surprised when a congressperson, an MP, etc takes foreign money?

This is capitalism

Everything is for sale

EveryONE is for sale

There is no way around it

Pass a law to prevent it and they find a loophole

Anytime you have the forces of the markets in play, anything is possible if you have enough money to buy the right people

Morrison's End

I think a good case could be made for Jim Morrison having clinical depression:

"During the recording of the L.A. Woman album, Morrison talked about “taking a holiday”—from what, and for how long, never specified. (When you need to take a holiday from being an adored rock star in Los Angeles, things are definitely not right.) Eve Babitz’s sister Mirandi, who knew Morrison and his long-term partner Pamela Courson socially, thought that Morrison’s excessive boozing and drugging were an attempt to cover up undiagnosed depression. She comments: “It was as if he was very unhappy inside.” Perhaps all the drunken bluster and daredevil stunts and authority-baiting were a numb man’s way of feeling something. This suggests another way of looking at his writing, too. For all its mythic yearning, it leaves very little sense of real emotional engagement. There’s just the suspicion that this ready-made poetic syntax might be a perfect way of not saying what it is you’re really feeling (or, worse: what you’re not feeling)."
