Another of America's Hollywood Gods bites the dust. Yet, still the people worship the actor on the hill. Ever wonder why these actors are so lost, so sad and isolated? Shy most of them never find happiness in their marriage or children. Why so many turn to Drugs and liquor. They were never meant to be worshipped. God is a jealous God.

I wonder if Chris Light was murdered and it was made to look like suicide? He died the same way Peter Lopez attorney for Michael Jackson did. Why would someone go out in the back of their house and shoot themselves. It is usually done in their homes. Could Chris lighty have known something about MJ murder? Then he was going to be called to the AEG trial now someone murdered him in the music business. I don't know for sure but now I am reading that Peter Lopez did not kill himself that it looks strong he was murdered. Let's face it there have been many suspicious murders and suicides in the last 3 years. Only a month ago Katherine Jackson said someone was trying to murder her from the Jacko estate planners.

Jane, you have FAR too much time on your hands. Are you one of those people who gave up trying to find a job?

In show biz', "suicides happen".

Who cares.

Imagine that this is all you did with your life, starting when Carter was still president.

Want to look forward to a retirement home with 70 year old break dancers?
