Sure, I've slapped Tina...

There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I never beat her.
-Ike Turner

Ike Turner died yesterday and it got me thinking. How do you separate the bad from the good in people? Turner was a Rock and Roll legend, a drug addict, an alcoholic, a womanizer, a man who abused his wife. And, as the above quote shows, totally clueless.
