MINIMUS- I agree about Farrah Fawcett. I feel sorry for her family and Ryan O'Neal since her life and what she accomplished has not been discussed much either. I read that after her role in the movie " The Burning Bed " where she played the role of an abused wife - that she joined an organization helping victims of spousal abuse in a very real proactive way.
Ironic isn't it that here we have a public figure Michael Jackson being almost deified after his death due to his musical influence, but his alleged abuse of children ignored or strange behavior justified , i.e. giving minors wine , sitting with them looking at porno , hanging his infant child out a 2nd story window. You know, normal stuff like that.
Yet we have Farrah Fawcett who fought against spousal abuse and helped victims - yet compared to the attention Jackson is getting - it's like she never died. Ridiculous
