What’s the dealio with all the celebrity deaths and other bad news lately?
As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been kind of busy for the past few days. I’ve marked certain posts about celebrity deaths, heath scares and arrests in my RSS bucket to post about here, but then I got busy… and now the marked posts are really piling up!
Here’s the list so far:
Martin Kelly (husband of actress Natascha McElhone, died of heart failure)
Bo Diddley (Blues musician, terrible health in the past few years)
Yves Saint Laurent (French designer, died of a brain tumor)
Ted Kennedy (Liberal jackass and bad driver, has brain tumor)
Kelsey Grammer (Actor, had “mild” heart attack)
Tatum O’Neal (arrested trying to buy crack cocaine)
What the hell?
As an interesting side note, if Ted Kennedy eventually dies of natural causes, he’ll be the only son of Joseph Kennedy Sr. to die of natural causes. Their oldest son, Joe, Jr., died in a plane crash in WWII, while John and Bobby were (of course) assassinated.
