What a week!!

What was it with the last couple of weeks? Let's recap, shall we?

First, Ed McMahon dies, longtime co-host of the Tonight Show w/ Johnny Carson. Not a super famous celeb, but most people know who he is.

Then last Thursday, in the morning, I read that one of the original Charlie's Angels passed away, from cancer. Farrah Fawcett. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

Next up, later in the day, the self-proclaimed "King of Pop", Michael Jackson, collapses from a cardiac arrest. Looks like he was addicted to pain meds. No real surprise there.

Finally, yesterday morning, that annoying-as-hell TV pitchman, Billy Mays, was found dead in his home. Apparently he suffered some type of head trauma on a rough flight.

Obviously the big name here is Michael Jackson. But, of all of these people, that's the one I care the least about. I liked MJ a lot better in the 80s, and up through the early 90s. Then he started having freaky plastic surgery done. And, one can't forget the career-killing child molestation trials he went through. That, and it looks like he died in debt by more than 400 million. That's a "4" with 8 zeros behind it. Ouch!

At any rate, makes me wonder what is next?
