Is it in fact unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins, is it better to burn out or fade away?

Ministry of Silly Blogging
lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right side of the blog isn't silly at all and the left side merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate post. But I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly.
Hey, it's worth a shot. Isn't it? Worth a shot?
What's to tell, really? I'm a sarcastic Fat Guy with little concern for the feelings of others if it would sacrifice my amusement. I spent most of my life in and around Milwaukee, WI, including my formative years. Went to college in Texas, then moved back north for 15 years before the wife and I packed up our lives to try a new start in Tampa, FL, land of the oversized insects and mutant frogs.
Now we've moved to Ohio, wish us luck! It may not be 'home', but so much closer to the real thing. Is that a hill?

The FTC has mandated that we as bloggers must make full disclosure of any compensation we may have received for our past endorsements.
I have received none. Zilch. Bupkus. Not a sausage. But not without trying.
So please, if you'd like to pay me to heartily endorse your product and/or service, just let me know, because I could use the money.
Or a Cadillac. A Cadillac would be nice.
I have a couple of couches, and as a matter of fact, have been known to fall asleep on the loveseat on more than one occasion.
It turns out I have a vitamin D deficiency. One would find that hard to believe, me, not getting enough dairy? However, it would seem that adult vitamin D deficiency is relatively common in shut-ins and the institutionalized. And if you don't think working in an office all day is the same as being institutionalized, you need to wake up and smell the soothing green walls.
I'm not getting enough sun, eating enough fish or liver, and I apparently need to up my dairy intake. And apparently as we age, and because the American Cancer Society along with the National Sunscreen Coalition have been harping at us about UV rays, wearing sunscreen actually inhibits the body's natural ability to synthesize Vitamin D.
(I'm already sick of typing 'Vitamin D' but somehow abbreviating it as 'VD' might give readers the wrong idea...)
Vitamin D deficiency can prevent your body from absorbing calcium (hypocalcemia) and potassium from the foods you eat, meaning your body will start stealing those minerals from itself. I can end up with osteomalacia, or 'adult rickets'. With my BMI, I don't think brittle bones are a good thing. Apparently, it could also be driving my RLS. See? I'm not kicking Lori in her sleep due to suppressed rage, after all. Proper vitamin D levels could also help prevent certain cancers.
So what then, is an appropriate level of solublized Vitamin D? From the office of 'Well, duuuuuuh!', the Vitamin D Council suggests that the minimum level is 2 1/2 times that which was recommended by the doctor's office. I don't know what my hypochondria is going to do with this conflicting data.
All I know is that I've had it up to here with these damn rickets.
