Accidents

Whitney Houston had cocaine, marijuana, Xanax and Benadryl in her system when she drowned.  The coroner has ruled her death “accidental”.   There must be a study somewhere showing that there are a lot less accidental deaths when someone doesn’t have cocaine, marijuana, Xanax and Benadryl in their system.  One would think, right?

    Reminds me of the great old days of the “Bloom County” comic strip: the kids are checking wheezy, drugged-out metal rocker Bill the Cat in to the Betty Ford Center. The nurse asks what the cat is being checked in for and is given the usual litany of “cocaine, alcohol, uppers, downers, pot, sedatives, freebasing Tender Vittles…”

    The nurse writes “Exhaustion.”

    I’m guessing that’s what Whitney was suffering from , certainly not peripheral substances sought after by a wounded mind and provided by an enabling coterie.
