Farrah Fawcett is Dying

It sounds like just another tabloid intrusion into some poor actress's private life, and maybe it is.  But it is also a generational milestone, not quite the way the death of Elvis was for our parents, but in the same family of milestones.  And it makes us very sad.

If you were never a boy in the 1970s, we can't explain to you what Farrah meant.  And if you were, we don't have to.

Well if you were a girl in the 70s you spent hours trying to get your hair to look like hers...But it is very sad.
