DEATHS...Michael Jackson; Farrah Fawcett
As you well know by now, Michael Jackson died today. (age 50)
Farrah Fawcett died today, too. (age 62)

The news is reporting heart issues for Michael's death.
I'm wondering...who was with him at the time of his death...or,
if he was home alone, who found him?

Ryan O'Neal was at Farrah's bedside when she passed, so the news reports.

I heard on the news this morning that Farrah had died, but had no idea about Michael Jackson!

I feel bad for Farrah's loved ones. I'm sure she'll be missed.

I can't bring myself to mourn the loss of a child molester though.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

My heart goes out to both their families and loved ones.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Michael dying threw me for a loop...but yeah...he was such a weirdo...a talented weirdo, but a weirdo none the less....

His music was enjoyed by so many generations of ppl, not to mention all around the world....I didn't put much thought into it, but I couldn't believe he was 50...for some reason I thought he was younger....*shrugs*

I've only just woken up and just come online when I had seen the headlinds on my yahoo news that both stars had died.

In the 70s I loved them both.

R.I.P both of you.

I sorta agree. Although, we don't have any evidence that he ever molested anyone. But why would anyone want to put themselves in a position that would make them look guilty?

He was actually pretty transparent about what he did. The whole documentary where he let people come in his house, allowing himself to be strip-searched, etc. kind of shows the opposite of what people learned from the media headlines bastardizations.

For those who though MJ is a wacko. ie Have young boys over his house.

To me when someone says he's a wacko, he's does not fit our general definition of "normal." Its like when we see a guy who bakes?

I believe the saying, do not judge others because we don't their struggles.

Here is one posting i got from a forum.

================================================== ===========================
Do you ppl honestly just not like him because of his old, wierd habits? Do your guys realize what knd of a childhood he had..? He didnt sleep, eat or have anytime for a life. I can understand at his age now going to some teens house and being like do you wanna hang because he never had the chance to becuase of how abused he was in his career. And i can knda understand why he got caught up with that kid that he suposively malestied. His bros were older so they had friends around and they were guy

I guess the coroners are gonna keep picking at his remains until they are satisfied how and why Mr. Jackson died. It seems suspicious from what I've heard on the news.

Let's face it, for years and years, everything has gone south for Michael Jackson. Now it's just about as far south as it can get.

Not commenting on his private life...but his ability to sing and perform were unparalleled! No one will ever forget his music. Kinda like Elvis Presley's music, and the music of the Beatles. They were all one-of-a-kind. Elvis's private life went south, too.
