The legendary singer Lena Horne has died aged 92.  Very sad.  A great voice.

Re: Lena Horne Dies

A great voice, a great act and committed to equal treatment for all, come hell or high water she wouldn't perform for segregated audiences, even refusing, during WWII, to perform in front of an audience where white German PoWs were sat in front of Negro GIs.  There may be one or two here who would do well to follow her philosophical example.
But we all have to die, better by far to celebrate the joys that she brought us.
I have posted the obvious link

Why couldn't I post the vid here?
