No. Martin is fine. He has done fantastic work in film and literature. But Diana Ross? A skank and a ho who slept her way to stardom? Homey don't think so.

The Kennedy Center honors has turned into the Post Office equivalent of "commemorative" stamps--popularity over substance or contribution. Former B-listers and A-listers who dropped out of contemporary culture long ago are suddenly chosen for the past achievements or celebrity.

It's like the committee that chose the Honors said, "OK, we have two famous and deserving, one not famous but kind of is deserving because of that thing they did 30 years ago, and let's honor one more who is really not deserving but will get ratings for our telecast as long as that person shows up sober..."
