Winehouse a biological weapon, sources say

THIS WEEK we learn that British singer Amy Winehouse has an infected face.

She was diagnosed with a skin condition called impetigo, which is a highly contageous bacterial infection that forms lesions, then pustules, then thick crust.

I can’t help but wonder if being doped out one’s gourd and falling face down in one’s vomit causes this condition. But then I remember that no one cares much about Winehouse’s looks. Apparently not even Winehouse. The 5 Grammy awards she won last month weren’t because folks admire her nice skin and healthy lifestyle, that much is certain.

Not surprisingly, the treatment of choice for impetigo is drugs.
