Struck Down


It's been an eerie week, dominated by the grim reaper.  The Terri Schiavo media and political explosion put everyone on death watch and had us all debating about whether she should be allowed to die or kept alive.  Now we're all back on death watch waiting for word from the Vatican as to the state of Pope John Paul II.  He's not expected to make it through the night.

In addition to these extremely high profile passings, there was the unexpected death of Johnnie Cochran, the youthful demise of Mitch Hedberg and reports that Jerry Falwell was in critical conditon.  Unfortunately, Falwell is still with us.  With the foul stench of death hovering about, I didn't like one bit the headline I just read.  "Neil Young Recovering From Brain Aneurysm".

Neil Young is a very special musician.  My collection is littered with his stuff.  He was born in Toronto and first made his mark here and I was quite looking forward to seeing him at this Sunday's Juno Awards.  Needless to say, he's no longer attending.

Get better Neil.  We need you rockin' in the free world.
