She Fought a Great Fight

Farrah Fawcett passed on this morning, and I felt it was important to pause and give her a moment of respect. She was much more than a pretty face or the women with the famous locks of hair that sparked a fad and craze that spanned the decades. She was a good actress, as her performances in shows like The Burning Bed and Extremities prove.

I liked Farrah. I didn't always agree with her, but she was just a human being like the rest of us, and she made mistakes.

I applaud how she tackled her cancer, doing so with extraordinary bravery. Recently, a special detailing her fight aired on NBC. It was pretty incredible. The documentary wasn't easy to watch, but it was the truth of what anal cancer can do to a person.

Farrah was iconic, and she'll be missed.
