The past few days have produced what one co-worker labeled the “trifecta of celebrity deaths.” At the time, Michael Jackson was practicing for his upcoming comeback tour. Said co-worker pondered who the third might be. Ed McMahon passed a couple days ago and then Farrah Fawcett early yesterday. Farrah chronicled her battle with cancer in a rather shocking and honest video diary, clips of which have been shown on the news quite frequently. Then yesterday, starting at 5:15pm, I started seeing news reports via my phone (@cnnbrk) that MJ had a heart attack. Reports that followed said he was in a coma and then that he had died. More reports said he hadn’t died, but then truth finally was confirmed. Michael Jackson was dead at age 50.
