Yeah, ironically enough she apparently explains herself quite well (two years earlier) in "The Emperor's New Clothes":

 

Everyone can see what's going on

They laugh 'cause they know they're untouchable

Not because what I said was wrong

Whatever it may bring

I will live by my own policies

I will sleep with a clear conscience

I will sleep in peace

 

Maybe it sounds mean

But I really don't think so

You asked for the truth, and I

Told you

 

Through their own words

They will be exposed

They've got a severe case of

The emperor's new clothes

It's strange. I was just reading about the backlash that she received after the SNL incident. Somehow, Pope John Paul 2 was lauded by many in the US in the late 80's and early 90's. (My guess is that he was still living off the grace he showed his would be assassin because he publicly forgave him.) So much so that he packed Stadiums (including Camden Yards) in what I would call the JP2's US Mass Tour.Turned out the guy was the most prolific pedophile protector the Vatican has had in modern times. He's absolutely the patron Saint of pedophiles.

Was never a huge Eagles fan, but I've always counted Take it to the Limit as one of my favorites.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Robbie Robertson. 

 

Damn man. Garth Hudson is the last man standing from the Band. 

 

Interesting factoid: Eric Clapton, after being turned down when he asked if he could join the Band, formed Derek & the Dominos instead.

Former Raven RB Alex Collins, 28.  I believe he played a couple of games in either the XFL or USFL this Spring.

Not recent deaths, of course, but on August 16, 1948, Babe Ruth died at the age of 53. Fast forward 29 years to August 16, 1977, which is when Elvis died at the age of 42.

 

Other notables were Margaret Mitchell (age 49 in 1949) and Bela Lugosi (age 73 in 1956).

Former Raven linebackers coach and Baltimore Colt defensive coordinator Maxie Baughan, 85. While with the Ravens, Baughan is the one who stumped for the Ravens to take Ray Lewis with their second first-round pick in the 1996 draft.

 

Baughan was also a Pro Bowl linebacker nine times during his 15-season NFL career from 1960 thru 1974.
