Drug Addicted Celebrities and Fallen Heroes

It was 12:26 p.m. Eastern time when my breaking news feed alerted me that Whitney Houston’s funeral was underway. Instructions were given in the story that followed to watch the splash of weeping and parading celebrities live as it happened on another network, but that this station would interrupt its 24/7 all news and weather format with breaking news about the event.

About that time another feed appeared from a different source. It remained in place for about an hour, only to be replaced by a more important sports headline that has been in place since.

You won’t know this person’s name, and it isn’t likely anyone but a few local outlets will mention it, and then probably in passing.
