I was watching the news late last night and I was shocked to hear of the death of a famous celebrity.

Their career started in the mid 60's and through the next couple of decades their fame and fortune knew no bounds. It all started to go sour towards the 90's and nobody has heard or seen much of them in many a year, save for the odd picture in those celebrity dross magazines showing off their latest bout of failed plastic surgery.

Yesterday, they passed away. I'm sure you are all with me in prayer for this fallen idol.

RIP Farrah Fawcett.

Oh, and some dude called Michael Jackson died as well.

It's always the shock of a death that gives it greater impact. Farrah Fawcett has been ill with cancer for a long time. No-one expected Michael Jackson to suddenly be gone. Also, I daresay that there are a lot more Michael Jackson fans in the world and people who have enjoyed his music than people who can recall much of Fawcett's output. I knew she was in Charlie's Angels, but that was about it. I have owned three Jackson albums over the years and still think that Billie Jean is among the best pop songs ever written. They weren't really on a comparable scale of impact, so this isn't really like Princess Diana (rich, posh, troubled, and once held the hand of a person with AIDS) and Mother Teresa (religious, dedicated her life to helping the poor, withheld pain medication).

I've got no idea whether he did anything untoward with children. I don't think he did, I suspect he probably crossed normal adult/child boundaries, but I don't really believe he abused them. What I do know is that he was a musician who inspired many people.
