Excesso de Vitamina C (Será Tang?)

Qual tsunami, qual Papa, quais massacres de Dili, o que é Tianamen senão uma bela praça chinesa, de qualquer maneira prefiro a seca à chuva.

Com a fraca periodicidade com que consulto o e-mail, só hoje soube as notícias, deixo o conteúdo para mais esclarecimentos enquanto vou rezar um terço:
« Some of you may have heard, sad news ...5pm Orange Juice frontman suffers brain haemmorhage.
Press Association Thursday February 24, 2005: Musician Edwyn Collins is seriously ill in hospital after suffering a brain haemorrhage, his management team said today.The singer and guitarist, who fronted 80s rock art combo Orange Juice before enjoying solo success with the hit A Girl Like You, was taken ill on Sunday. A statement from his management team said: "Edwyn Collins suffered a cerebral haemorrhage on Sunday night and has been in hospital since,where doctors are trying to stabilise his condition. As soon as we`ll have more information we will let you know.".
Collins, 45, who lives in London, was working as producer on the debut album from London blues-soul three-piece Little Barrie when he was taken ill. The artist was born in Edinburgh in 1959. In 1976, he formed theNu-Sonics, which resurfaced three years later as Orange Juice. The band led the Glasgow neo-pop scene with songs like Rip It Up and earned a devoted cult following but little commercial success. Despite his trademark soulful baritone, the singer later struggled to launch a solo career and was signed briefly with Alan McGee's Elevation in 1986. After becoming a producer in the 1990s, Collins earned another shot as a performer when he signed with the small UK independent label Setanta. He then recorded his third solo effort, the album Gorgeous George, and its song, A Girl Like You, became a huge international hit in 1995.»
