One of my thoughts yesterday was how this would overwhelm the news of Farrah Fawcett’s death. As I think about it, though, maybe that’s to the benefit of her and her loved ones, who may be able to lay her to rest with a bit less of the intrusive media eye.

  • If I have to stand in line for eternity I'd like to be standing right behind Farrah, too.

  • Tin Man – you never cease to amaze me. If this were BOB DILLON you would have to go into mourning……

Maybe Farrah's family and friends will be able to grieve in therr own way and do ther own thing without wso much media scrutiny. It may have been a blessing for her family and freinds that MJ passed away the same day.
