R.I.P. Ed, Farrah, and Michael.

First it was Ed McMahon. Celebrities usually die in threes. Last night, I told Mr. Hawthorne about Ed McMahon dying. He hadn't heard. And he immediately asked me, "Who do you think the next one will be?" Without even thinking, I immediately responded, "Farrah Fawcett." Then, BOOM! Farrah died. Then, Michael Jackson. On the same day. Farrah was 62. Michael was 51. Here's the quintessential picture of everyone's Angel, Farrah Fawcett:
And, NOW, the most talented showman ever (and the weirdest and creepiest and saddest), Michael Jackson: From this beautiful child:
To this freak:
What on earth happened to Michael Jackson? Both icons - Farrah and Michael - died on the same day. Kathy said it best. Here. And that would be Kathy of Reinventing A Boomer blogdom fame.
