If this is your first time here, I recommend starting from the first episode and working your way forward. Of course, that's entirely your call.

Honoring The Voice.

I don't necessarily think this is the place to touch on current events or offer heartfelt tributes, but it seems wrong to post a comedic entry on Monday without first offering respect to the legendary Whitney Houston. As I may have mentioned previously, she was second in line for the role of Sondra, so her star almost shone in this very spot. If The Cosby Show shaped your youth, then I'm sure her music did as well. Her passing is as unfortunate as it is untimely, and she will be missed. I hope that you will all send your thoughts to her family. A mother should never have to bury her child, nor should a young child have to bury her mother. Remember Cissy and Bobbi and the terrible loss they grieve.

    1. Thank you, Meg. I thought hard about whether to post this, but I felt compelled mostly because of all the negative comments I've seen since her passing. People can be judgmental, and I thought that it would be valuable to put Ms. Houston in a context to which we could all relate. Families suffer losses; mine certainly has. By remembering our own mothers, daughters, grandparents, cousins, or whoever else, we can think less about the gossip and the headlines and more about what it truly means to say goodbye to someone.
