With the news about Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, I feel that part of my childhood has been lost.  That may sound melodramatic, but it’s true. Whether or not you liked Michael Jackson and whether or not you followed all the public fallout in his later life, you can’t deny his influence on the MTV Generation.  No, I never danced around with one white glove — but I had friends who begged their mothers for red leather jackets.  Plus, Thriller scared the heck out of me.

As for Farrah Fawcett, who didn’t want to be one of Charlie’s Angels?  At least for a little while?  It’s true that recently Farrah Fawcett was in the spotlight for her brave fight against cancer, but I want to remember her as all blond hair and perfect health.  And beautiful.

RIP Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson
