I think I need another TV channel...... The Death Channel. It would specialize in covering the lives of recently dead celebrities and those long boring rehashings of The Year that show-up around New Years. The Death Channel would allow me to continue to watch the shows I look forward to each day and week without fear of preemption just because a famous person has left us.
Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and today the famous huckster Billy Mays. With the number and age of celebrities around these days pretty soon ALL the regular channels will be nothing but death stories. We need a whole channel just for those folks, and their fans so the rest of us can enjoy our regular choice of entertainment and information.
It's just another push forward for the net.... where one can choose the info one needs/wants. Remember when Princess Di died? .... was it continuous coverage on every channel for what? a week? or was it a month? God help us when Obama goes, or even gets sick.... it'll be bedside 24/7 coverage and if he dies, oh my God! it'll be at least a month or a year? of 24/7 mausoleum coverage!
P.S. Also today, "My Little Margie," Gale Storm Passed.
