    Humans, Posthumans, and a Detergent Ad - How Doo Doo Doo Doo Heartbreaker

    Forget that "opera-trained" hoodoo that sur rounded Mariah's early years. First of all that's a code to cajole the easily impressed and class-conscious into taking some low-falutin' pop singer seriously as an ARTIST (see also Pat Benatar '80). In Mar...
