Recording artist Whitney Houston might
have abruptly died last week during preparations for the Grammy Awards,
but the real tragedy was the news overshadowing both the show and the
most important industry news of the week — Beyonce and Jay-Z giving the
media pictures of their baby for the first time.
Thanks to the Cincinnati Police Department, nearly 150 residents of three Section 8 buildings in Avondale had their utilities turned back on. Landlord Joseph Lentine III blamed the disruption in service first on Duke Energy. When the power was restored, it's quite likely he had to resist throwing in a Shaq-in-his-prime zinger like "at least something in those buildings is working now."
