Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009)

In 1976, Charlie's Angels premiered on TV. I was 10 years old. I'm not sure if Farrah Fawcett was my first crush, but she was certainly the first celebrity that caught my attention (well apart from Kim Richards [of Escape to Witch Mountain], but she was my age, not a grown up). While many of my friends acquired the famous poster of Farrah, my mother went a step further and bought me a pillow with the poster emblazoned upon it. I loved that pillow and it made me a hero to my friends. Those were happy days.

Following the death of Ed McMahon a few days ago, I heard someone say that life can often be measured with the passage of stars from our adolescence. For me, Farrah Fawcett was one of those stars.
