I never knew that. Thanks. My most vivid memory is seeing my six year old daughter so moved that she cried. I'll pass the link along.

My wife had applied for the privilege of being on that flight in the Teacher In Space contest. She submitted a long essay and really wanted to go. This is one time that I was glad that she didn't get her heart's desire. tongue

Death in sports is real only at the moment; it's evanescent! (I assume the current rallying cry in New England is "The Pats are dead! Long live the Pats!")

(Out-uninvolving you, though, I didn't even watch the game...neither TV nor inclination...just picked up on an occasional score update; my "rooting" for the Giants was limited to an expression of extreme faith in Eli's credentials as the best "MONEY" QB in the game.)

Another star dies from cocaine... this just continues to baffle me.

If I found myself wealthy, my health would become a very high priority. Why do they do it? Just because they can? Stuuuuupid! what else can I say?

I wonder if some of it is brought on by the fact of being a rock star and whether it starts with the heavy touring that is needed to get to the top.

You're flying to new dates every day, back and forth through time zones, performing in front of 120dB SPL PA systems. Someone drags you off to meet city VIPs right after the concert where booze is plentiful, you're dragged back to the hotel and shot up with something to make you sleep, in the morning you need something to wake up....and on it goes.

My guess is that the weaker succumb to a need for something to push it all back, and then they're into a whole other problem.

I just changed some post titles above back to the original. When posting to this thread (and most others) it's best not to change the post title. Replies automatically and quite possibly inappropriately copy the new title, which then wreaks havoc on subsequent searches. Thanks!

You might be on the right track, but not because of heavy touring schedules. Managers and record label executives have quite a track record of being drug users, and might be less inclined to sign a person who doesn't party with them.
