The starter for today is: in passing.
Wow, it's been quite the week in the world of celebrity deaths. Ed McMahon. Farrah Fawcett. Michael Jackson.
I have no real attachment or emotional investment in any of them but those are three iconic figures of my childhood right there. Gone.
I'm not one to get caught up in celebrity news or gossip or whatever. I know that thousands of people die every day, all over the world. But it feels strange, especially in the case of Jackson, knowing that someone that grew up on television in front of the whole world has passed away. At the age of fifty, no less.
I'm feeling old today.
