Remember those who passed

June 30, 2009 at 5:45 pm Leave a comment

It is a sad time for those who follow the lives and careers of entertainers.  A short list of those notables who have passed away over the last week include national figures Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays and local musician Sky Saxon.

The lives of these famous people often mirrored the greatest dreams and deepest fears of their fans.  Who among us has not wished at some point that they could be as rich or famous as a superstar entertainer?  Who has not cheered the successes of these people or grieved upon seeing the reality of their dreams come crashing down?  Perhaps this is why we find their lives and ultimately their deaths as being somehow larger or more noteworthy than our own.

For anyone who wishes to learn more about these and other famous people throughout history, our BIOGRAPHY section is the place to start.  Entertainers, politicians, villains and heroes can almost come to life in the pages of a well-written biography. We have placed selected biographies of Michael Jackson and others on display throughout the store to help start your journey.
