Joni Mitchell in a coma On March 31st, Joni Mitchell was found unconscious in her L.A. home and rushed to the hospital. TMZ is now reporting that she is unable to make any responses and her close friend Leslie Morris is filing legal documents to get conservatorship over Mitchell. This means that Morris will be managing Mitchell’s financial affairs and her daily life. This also suggests that Mitchell, the legendary singer who wrote “Big Yellow Taxi,” probably doesn’t have too much time left. It’s sad that she has to go into nonexistence. She gave so much to the world with her beautiful voice and her great songs!
