Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you made life worth living.
The Sad Lady Vanishes
"The biggest devil is me. I'm either my best friend or my worst enemy," --Whitney Houston dead at 48
"Everybody wanted Whitney to be what she wasn't - she wasn't Dionne Warwick. Whitney wasn't a complete pig; the lipstick worked. The Positive Black Image was credible, not just for Whitney but for a generation who saw Bill Cosby as Dad. It went from Sidney Poitier to Bill Cosby with Eddie Murphy in the middle. Eddie didn't have to care, and so he didn't try so much to keep up appearances - which was why his Dr Doolittle was so brilliant and good. But maintainers of the Positive Black Image needed Whitney, in the same desparate way they now need the Obamas even more." -- The Whitney Analogy - CobbPosted by gerardvanderleun at February 11, 2012 6:04 PM
