End of An Era for Baby Boomers

Thursday June 25, 2009 will be remembered as an important day in our cultural history. The names Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson are now bound together forever as both died on the same day. Ms. Fawcett represented the clean image we all admired while MJ represents the bad boy image with extreme eccentricity thrown in to make him one of the most interesting people of our era. Farrah Fawcett set a fine example in her clean life and her courageous battle with cancer. Michael gave us music and dance which thrilled us with excitement and enthusiasm. Years from now I believe Michael Jackson will be remembered much like Elvis Presley is remembered. It is hard to say if Michael or Elvis made the greater cultural impact. Each had a troubled life and an unexpected death when their career seemed to be coming back strongly.
Let Farrah be our role model.
