Eek Don't know why it comes as such a shock but still.

I need to go hunt down my signed chapbook and read it in remembrance.

Man, his poetry really helped at a weird time in my life. Now I have People Who Died stuck in my head.

I just came back on when I saw this on the BBC - he was my first movie crush. I feel like a part of my childhood is gone... Frown

My mom looked like she was gonna burst into tears when I told her Patrick Swayze died. I really can't blame her. Frown

I'm not trying to be cruel, but if Michael J. Fox's condition got critical (I clearly don't know the ins and outs of Parkinson's Disease, just that it progressively gets worse) I don't think I'd be able to take any more deaths for about 10 years.

I just found out about this from Twitter, of all places. I'm stunned. I'm also heartbroken. I knew he was quite sick and really fighting, but I didn't know it had gotten this bad.

Just like I don't know anything about a world without Michael Jackson (for better or worse), I don't know a world without Patrick Swayze. For years, Dirty Dancing and Ghost were about the only movies my sister and I owned. And I loved, LOVED how he pulled off To Wong Foo.

I have to go process...

Frown Patrick Swayze
I'm sorry to see him go.. I actually met the man several times while he lived in Texas before he moved to California... A very sweet person.. he had a quirky sense of humor too.. and very down to earth... he shopped at the Price Chopper in Tomball, Tx (that's where I first met him in the mid 80's).. I remember my first words to him "Are you...?" he nodded and smiled while he held a finger to his lips then shook my hand.. and went back to shopping..

I don't think he died.. he just flew back to the Silver City..

You are a Leprechaun. I'm not even sure what you are. Whiskey-soaked reports from your baffling Isle of Ire raise more questions than they answer. Are you a dwarf? Where's your pickax? If you're an elf, why don't you cobble? You'd think with all your gold, you could invest in some land, perhaps a title, and improve your station. Instead, you hide it in meteorologically-determined locations. You're getting killed on inflation, little friend!

He is being honored and written about at work a great deal since his death. The University of Minnesota is proud of what he accomplished, even amongst the criticism of how the "Green Revolution" is unsustainable.

I met Mr. Borlaug several times. He was always so down-to-earth and humble. It took a while for someone to tell me what a Really Big Deal he was, because -he- never brought it up.
