Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

I've been following the latest chapter in the Linsay Lohan saga. It has been kind of hard not to since it has been all over the TV and Internet. I can only say that it is a tragedy, not a earth shattering tragedy in the sense of hundreds dying in an flood or avalanche, but a tragedy just the same.

Linsay Lohan could have been the next Elizabeth Taylor, another child actor who had the beauty, charisma, and talent to make that great leap across the chasm between being a child star and adult one but instead she headed down the same path Drew Barrymore traveled. The question is, does she have the strength to step off it before she reaches the end? If not, instead of the next Elizabeth Taylor or Drew Barrymore she will be remembered as the next Barbara Payton.
