All three of these entertainment personalities had their own special places in shaping the lives of our generation. Ed McMahon was among those remaining who brought the last bit of dignity and (mostly) tasteful humor to late night television. Farrah Fawcett Majors (remember her marriage to the 6 Million Dollar Man?) graced our weeknight tv time with a few other angels. And Michael Jackson... well it goes without saying that he was in a league of his own.
As I prepared this post last night at 11pm, I knew there would be plenty of internet buzz this morning all saying the same things. So I'm not going to try to compete. Just do your own google search for Ed, Farrah or MJ and you can find your own reading material. But I did want to post a couple of videos here for you to enjoy.
Though she was only on for one season, Farrah is most likely everyone's favorite angel.
Watch Michael's other videos here.
And heeeeeeere's a CBS recap of Ed McMahon's career.
My choice to feature these three people on this blog was primarily because of their contribution to our 70's & 80's entertainment culture. I haven't kept up with any of these three in any detail for many years, and certainly do not condone many of their lifestyle choices. As with anyone's death, my hope for them is that their hope was in Jesus Christ - the only Hope. If so, then and only then may they rest in peace.
