What a last few days for deaths of well-known people. Here is a brief rundown:
First, notorious mass murderer Charles Manson. Dead.
AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young. Dead.
Della Reese from Touched by an Angel. Dead.
And just today, David Cassidy of Partridge Family fame. Even though this was widely expected, I feel the same way about this death as the day Gary Coleman died: my childhood has died today.
So I’m sad about David Cassidy, and these other deaths, but I’m not sad one bit about Charles Manson. His big mouth from jail has finally shut up at last. It’s the “down” escalator for him.
Update: Mel Tillis is also dead.
