Forgetting Farrah

Yes, Michael Jackson died, and yes it was a great loss to the music world. However, does an hour of Good Morning America need to be dedicated everyday to pure speculation about his death and his will? Do we need to hear daily what he paid in rent? Does every prime time news program have to run an hour special about MJ? Another person died that same day, whose death is being totally eclipsed by Jackson. Farrah Fawcett. I saw a small blurb on the news, after an interview with Lou Ferrigno about Jackson's workout routine, about her funeral. Today it's MJ's home movies. While she fought her horrible battle against anal cancer, yes, anal cancer, Farrah also started a fight for patien privacy rights. Even as her own life was on the decline, she fought for something that would help millions of Americans for generations to come. Why don't I hear about that everyday? Let's get our priorities in order. Yes, remember Jackson, but remember a Lady as well.
