Man, what a weird day! We lose Farrah Fawcett, then Michael Jackson just like that. Throw in Ed McMahon and the Rule of 3’s is proven once again.
UPDATE: Did I say it was a weird day? Apparently, their were rumors running rampant the last few hours that Jeff Goldblum had died while working on a movie in New Zealand. There’s rumors have been debunked by actor Kevin Spacey on, you guessed it, Twitter!
Another side note…maybe it’s a strange way to look at things, but I feel sorry for Farrah Fawcett. She was such an icon in the 1970s and with the death of Jackson, she’s not really getting her due. Reminds me of how Groucho Marx’s death was under-reported due to the fact that Elvis Presley died at about the same time.
Crazy ol’ world.
