Not A Day Like Any Other
This is not a day like any other. Today two icons left the building. Both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died today and both had a significant impact on society as it is today. RIP to both. You can argue all day about who was more important but the reality is that they are two different icons. I doubt there is a man my age(60 plus or minus 5 or 10 years) that didn't pause before the famous poster of Farrah. Likewise, there are few who would argue that Michael Jackson didn't change pop music for all time. "Thriller" was the largest selling album of all time and it did make a difference. I was never a fan but I respect the changes he brought to the music world.
