Record Label Multitasking

I'm not saying that Entertainment Weekly is a sketchy place to get your updates on pop culture, but they DO have a tendency to be known as EWWW. (Wait...too many Ws there...or maybe not.)

With that said, EW was cool enough to be the occasion for a bit of time travel yesterday morning, July 3, 2014, because I was reading the July 11, 2014 issue. Great Scot!

But that's not what this post is about. What this post IS about is the disturbing developments in the land of entertainment wherein agents and publishers and managers are taking over the roles and responsibilities of certain public officials.

Here's a case in point, quoted exactly from page 27:
Legendary R&B singer-songwriter Bobby Womack was confirmed dead by his label on June 27. He was 70.

So what's the deal? Are there no county coroners anymore?
