I had started a post, earlier today about Farrah's passing.
She was such an iconic figure in the 70's that it was impossible to go anywhere for a time and now be confronted by her famous poster featuring her brilliant smile and fantastic locks.
While I never had the crush on her I would later have on Cybil Shepherd, there was something about Farrah that transcended television. She was the television equivalent of what a movie star was.
She may not have been the best actress in the world, though she would wow audiences some years later in her performances on Broadway and television dramas, but there was something about her that proved she had star power.
I was a little sad this morning upon hearing the news. And now, I hear word that Michael Jackson has passed on. Really? How is that possible?
It's a sad day today. I'm in a funk now, even though I didn't know these people, there is something terribly sad about anyone's passing and their being iconic figures somehow makes it seem personal.
May they both rest in peace and may their families receive comfort and strength.
