I heard that on the radio this morning and was pretty surprised. She may have been a cultural icon, but she was also a train wreck of a drug addict for a large part of her career. I have a hard time accepting that as someone we should honor the same way we would politicians, members of the military and other heroes.

I agree it doesn't feel proper to honour someone with a less than stellar lifestyle.
