There are no more intense fans than the ilk that covets a pop star. And those that adore Whitney Houston are no exception to the rule. Thus, when a new bar near the Kosciuszko J opened, billing itself as having a Whitney “theme,” fans from throughout the tri-state area flocked to it in eager anticipation.
Marco’s, an addition to the Old Stanley’s empire, may attract Whitney novices that can be placated by a few of her songs on the jukebox, but for those staunch devotees, Marco’s can offer nothing but disappointment and anger–which is precisely why a group of them took to the bar in the wee hours of this morning to attempt defacing the establishment’s interior design with such graffiti as, “I will not always love you.”
The ringleader of the group, Costner Brown, a 34-year-old from Houston’s hometown of Newark, New Jersey, didn’t count on the fact that the owner of the bar, Burly Bushenquack, would have installed a state-of-the-art alarm system that was going off silently the entire time the fans were in progress of defacing the bar. When questioned by the police about his actions, Brown responded, “Marco’s is not right, but it’s okay.”
