Farrah Fawcett Dies


By THE NEW YORK TIMES

Farrah Fawcett, an actress, television star and pop-culture phenomenon whose good looks and signature leonine hairstyle influenced a generation of women and, beginning with a celebrated pinup poster, bewitched a generation of men, died on Thursday in Santa Monica, California, according to Paul Bloch, her spokesman. She was 62 and had been battling cancer since late 2006.

To an extraordinary degree, that fight was played out in public, generating enormous interest worldwide. Her face, often showing the ravages of her illness, became a tabloid fixture, and updates on her health became staples of television entertainment news.

In May, her cancer battle was chronicled in an NBC primetime documentary, “Farrah’s Story,” some of it shot on home video. An estimated 9 million people viewed it. Ms. Fawcett had initiated the project with a friend and producer, Alana Stewart, after she first learned of her cancer.

Thank you, farrah for lasting and holding on so long so that we all may remember you as a fighter and a believer.

I agree! I don't like to talk poorly about some body who died but at the same time glorifying them is a step to far. I mean if he was that great then why didn't anybody think that way when he was alive? it's a little late now don't you think?
