Remembering McMahon, Jackson and Fawcett
By Katrina and Gidig

Many people believe that events—in this case sad events—happen in threes. This past week, the death of celebrities certainly did; Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcet, and Ed McMahon, three of the most admired celebrities of our time, passed away.

Ed McMahon
(March 6, 1923 – June 23, 2009)

Ed McMahon, long time TV personality and game show host passed away on June 23, 2009 of natural causes.

For thirty years, McMahon performed alongside Johnny Carson on NBC's "Tonight Show." In addition to announcing Johnny with a huge "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!," he also sat with Carson through the remainder of the show, laughing at Carson's jokes and playing along with any quirky and fun comments.

In his final year, he and MC Hammer starred in a widely known commercial making fun of their own knacks of spending more than they earned. McMahon, who passed away in a Los Angeles hospital, will be missed by all of his costars and viewers around the world.

Michael Jackson
(August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

Michael Jackson, pop music legend, passed away on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 due to cardiac arrest.

Jackson had an iconic career, arguably the most popular singer and stage personality of all time. With his first television appearance when he was 11, he moved up to be known for best-selling albums such as “Thriller” in 1982. He’s also known greatly for dances such as the “Moonwalk”, or “The Thriller”.

Later in his career, his personal life got more of a spotlight than his music career. In 2005 he went on trial for child-molestation charges.

He was planning to perform 50 times around London in 2010, where 75,000 tickets were sold in four hours. The interest levels for Jackson have yet to fade completely.

Farrah Fawcett
(February 2, 1957 – June 25, 2009)

Farrah Fawcett, American actress, passed away on June 25, 2009 at the age of sixty-two due to cancer.

Fawcett, an amazing actress, was mostly known for playing Jill Munroe in the original “Charlie’s Angels” television show. She’s been in multiple other movies and television shows. Fawcett was also a model, making her a huge sex symbol for many years.

Fawcett battled anal cancer for three years and checked into a hospital in early April. She was on an IV (solely for nourishment rather than for treatment) at the time of her death.
