Indispensable People


Imagine a concert with Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and Patti LaBelle singing songs together.  That will never happen now.

Imagine a show with Robin William, Jim Carey, and Howie Mandel improvising together.  Again, it will never happen.

(It’s still possible for Tina Turner and Patti LaBelle to do a comedy show, and Jim Carey and Howie Mandel to sing songs at a concert.)

No disrespect to Aretha Franklin, but the world did not end when she died.  Yet the media would have us believe that the music industry is finished because of her passing.

It was the same when Robin Williams died on August 11, 2014.  (Has it been 4 years already?)  And it’s the same when any famous person dies.  The media go on and on and on as if the world won’t go on.

As the old saying goes, “The cemeteries are full of people the world could not do without.”
