Last night , Amy Winehouse, druggie diva and official persona non grata, beamed into LA through cyberspace and esconced with five of the six top grammies she was up for – the juiciest fruit of the extravanganza – best album –  went to jazz giant Herbie Hancock.
So the 24 year-old Brit out-flanked the US government loonies only to lose the top trophy to a 67 year-old black dude playing jazz covers of a 64 year-old Canadian folk chanteuse.
If we look for political parallels we can predict that the female favorite will win all but the big one, which could go to either a black guy or an old guy. There’s something to think about.
