no kidding! I'm still at work, and my supevisor came up & told me she'd heard a rumor- sure enough, it's all over the net. confirmed, by now. unreal. I feel very old suddenly- do you guys remember those Farrah Fawcett posters from the '70s, of her in the red bathing suit? Every male I knew had one hanging up.

Mark Sanford is probably breathing a sigh of relief......I'm sure the media will forget all about his Argentinian throw down after this.

     I am 13 yrs older than Michael Jackson and the same age as Farrah Fawcett.  Somehow neither death surprised me.  He was a walking time bomb for the undue stress he put on his body and mind.   She suffered terribly with anal cancer, the same disease which killed my grandmother.  Michael's death was tragic in the fact that he was such a talent even as a young boy.  Why he had to alter his looks?  He was a handsome black man!  One never knows what goes on in the recesses of the human mind.  This is a deja vu of the passing of Elvis.  I can still remember the morning of his passing.  Another great talent gone down tubes.

Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008
Meds as of June 09: Colazal (6 per day), 6MP (50 mgm), Probiotic (upped to 3 per day), Fish oil capsule, calcium, multivitamin, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning.  Also taking Benicar and Toprol to control high blood pressure.  Getting old is a b****.
