    Judy Garland's life was run by men. These newly unearthed recordings reveal how

    I can't say that I've ever been much of a Judy Garland fan, other than watching The Wizard of Oz as a kid, in addition to her role in Judgment at Nuremberg. But I've always found her story rather sad in her untimely demise.

    Of course, she's not the only celebrity to crash and burn. This seems to be a recurring story with a number of celebrities who seemingly have it made - talent, fame, riches - yet still end up like this. I never could understand it. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Keith Moon - and probably many more I can't think of offhand.

    How drugs mess people up was also part of the recent PBS Ken Burns Country Music series. Talent and fame attract those who would tempt people and try to tear them down into becoming drug addicts. And even worse, the pressure to use drugs to keep going due to the demands of the business.

    I'm thrilled beyond measure that my lack of talent resulted in never having to face the temptation and pressure that she and others succumbed to.

    Along these lines, if you're not familiar with the "27 Club" you might want to look it up.

    I read a memoir by Debbie Reynolds (Carrie Fisher's mom by the way). Fascinating. She kept marrying guys who tried to steal her money. It was so...hard to believe, but it somewhat aligned with what you said in the OP. I'm not saying I didn't believe it. I'm saying it was like...why would someone let someone do that to them? I don't know how people think.
