What A Shock

It wasn't enough to lose Farrah Fawcett, we had to lose Michael Jackson too. Now say what you will about his choices, and his life. I am certainly not qualified to judge him there. But he was talented, and could put on a heck of a show. I was a fan of him during his Thriller days. I am not sure how to react to his death. He was so young. I remember thinking 50, heck 40 was OLD. Now I see how young that truly is. Farrah Fawcett was only 62, and she fought a terrible and long battle of cancer. Michael Jackson had a clean bill of health at 50 and was probably dead before the paramedics even got to him. I do not have a clip of Farrah, although I will always remember her outstanding performance in The Burning Bed, but I found this clip of Michael Jackson that I felt show cased his dancing talent.

Thank you Farrah, thank you Michael for entertaining us with your talents. No matter what choices you made in this life, we will miss you.

Yesterday the purchases of Thriller on iTunes totally sky rocketed.

It would have been better with sound. I do like your comments about both of them.
