Today they have Michael Jackson's will in hand and Farrah Fawcett will be laid to rest in Los Angeles. Wow. This all seems so surreal. Yes, I know people die every day, but to see two vibrant talents gone so soon is sad. Farrah fought the good fight. As one reporter in NYC said, she saved her best for last -- showing the world she was brave, courageous and no dumb blonde the way she acted on Letterman that night. She took on cancer and the sleazy National Enquirer. She won one of those battles. (The next time any of you think about paying a dime to read the National Enquirer think about what they did to Farrah (she said the publication got someone at the hospital to reveal her medical records while she battled for her life).

And Michael Jackson -- how I remember "Beat It" and "Billie Jean" in those very early MTV days and watched his videos over and over, not to mention "Thriller". I remember watching the Jackson 5 cartoons in the 70's! Michael was simply magical.

It's sad to see these bigger than life icons wither and pass away too soon. It makes our lives seem all that more vulnerable. Was Michael really 50 already? And Farrah 62?

We'll miss them both.
