I'm in disbelief. Seems like everyone's dying lately. Bad month.

Bad month? More like a bad week...this just stinks. However, I find it interesting that someone posted about Billy Mays, and there hasn't been a post made about MJ or the others. I think I'm sad about Billy the most. In fact, I know I am.

It more of a shock about Jackson and Mays. I don't think anyone saw these two deaths coming in a matter of a few days, especially when Mays told a reporter about hitting his head but saying he was fine because he "had a hard head". Just sad news....

Bad month...

*David Carradine
*Farrah Fawcett
*Michael Jackson
*Ed McMahon
*Billy Mays

All will be missed, and I hope their families have lots of support to get through these rough times.

Honestly Billy Mays is the death that hurts the most. The fact that he'll live on in memory with happier thoughts than Jackson is strange though...
