What a week for celebrity passings! First Ed McMahon. Guess I should stop waiting for him to arrive with my Publisher's Clearinghouse check for $10 Million.

Next was Farrah Fawcett. One of my big-haired, gun toting Angel Heros. She fought quite a battle with her cancer. God bless her soul.

And now, the sequined gloved King of Pop. Michael Jackson has died. He was my first crush! I distinctly remember receiving the Thriller album for Valentine's Day when I was in the 3rd grade. I was so excited! I took it to school and all of my friends gathered around to stare at Michael staring out at us.

The world has lost 3 huge entertainers in just a few short days. I really hope that the families find comfort in their memories and that the fans of each will hold their memories dear.

  1. When I turned on the radio for the first time on Thursday, I thought North Korea had launched a missle, judging from the despairing tone of the DJ. My initial reaction to hearing of Jackson's death was relief since my mind was reeling about what could possibly be wrong. And then I was very, very, (irrationally) sad.

    It was certainly a dark day for the entertainment industry.
