What amazes me is the difference in coverage. We still hear about Michael Jackson, but we barely had a mention in the paper about Patrick.
That reminds me. Both Michael Jackson and Farah Faucett died on the same day. Guess whose death had more coverage/publicity?
With regard to Patrick Swayze: I remember about a month and a half ago, he did a story in People magazine. It had a photo of him and his wife outdoors somewhere. In the story, he expressed his destain for all the tabloid stories that suggested he was close to death. In the story, he also said that he was doing well and planned to live much longer. Too bad things did not turn-out that way.
