Two sad goodbyes

In a sad and surprising coincidence, America lost two pop culture icons yesterday: Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson.

Farrah Fawcett had been struggling with cancer for some time; still, her death on Thursday was no less sad for having anticipated it. In a shocking coincidence, Michael Jackson also died yesterday after having gone into cardiac arrest at his home in California. Say what you will about Mr. Jackson's personal life and legal problems, you cannot deny his lasting contributions to the music industry. Ms. Fawcett also greatly contributed to American pop culture through her acting roles in movies and on television.


There will be many blogs talking about the life and times of both of these stars today. We would simply like to say that our thoughts and prayers go to their children and their loved ones. They will be missed.

Poor Farrah, I really feel for her. MJ may have had a weird personal life, but yes, his music was loved the world over.
My heart goes out to their families :'(

What makes it even more sad is that you are hearing all about Michael Jackson all over the news channels, but not much at all about Farrah.

It is sad that we lost both of these stars as well as Ed McMann. But I must say that I'm glad the news media is finally giving some attention to Farrah's fight with cancer.
