What to make of the death of Amy Winehouse and so many other rock stars at 27? Is it “the age of the psychic slump? The age your body refuses to tolerate your addition?” Chris Richards bemoans that Winehouse is most remembered in the U.S. as a tabloid curiosity — but while her songs were nowhere on the airwaves this weekend, her influence is heard in the constant play of neo-soulsters Adele and Cee-Lo. Meanwhile, forget the “27 Club”: Courtland Milloy ponders why so many great artists suffer manic-depression.

In other news: Robert Ettinger, the father of cryonics died at 92, and yes, he’s been frozen. The White House woos top tweeters, but they just want to know if the president is reading their tweets.
