Let me be clear. My coronary heart is with the victims. I by no means thought the individuals I seemed as much as as a child, who sang and danced and gave me hope to turn out to be a celebrity would turn out to be drug addicts, youngster molestors and rapists. I hope we as a tradition create higher leaders. We want them.
