RIP Farrah Fawcett (1942-2009)

Yours truly was a little too young to have thought much of "the poster" everyone is talking about today upon hearing of the death of Farrah Fawcett.

What I do remember about the stunningly beautiful girl from Texas who entered our pop culture conscious back in 1976 was that she was married to the $6 million bionic man. Charlie's Angels was something that would have interested my sister more than me at the time.

Sadly, that marriage to Lee Majors fell apart a couple of years later.

And, the blonde bombshell's career was something of a roller coaster after that.

Then, a couple of years ago, we heard she was suffering from cancer.

So, while still sad, the announcement today was not at all unexpected.

I suppose one of the lessons to be drawn is that beauty is fleeting. And, in the case of this angel, it was all too fleeting.
