It comes in threes.

Two days ago, Ed McMahon.

Today, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Childhood icons are vanishing fast, and in Farrah's & Machael's cases, far too young (regardless of what we might feel about Mr. Jackson's personal dramas).

This is how I will remember Michael. I even had the Off the Wall album on vinyl (and admit it freely).

And this will always be Farrah.

Sometimes I have to wonder if the Universe gets a volume discount.

Agreed. I'll always remember Farrah for Charlie's Angels (and yes, I remember watching the show as a child). For Michael, though, the video and song I'll always remember will be Thriller.

I remember when I was in 4th or 5th grade, a friend of mine got a Michael Jackson suit for his birthday, all in red with zippers everywhere. Everyone wanted to be Michael.

Funny how things change...

I'm just so sad about today's two. Just sad and a little bewildered, perhaps.
