It just seems so weird when former icons are struck down ill or possibly even die. Since so much of their popularity is based on image, it just becomes hard to see them this way; it’s hard to rectify it. This will certainly be the case as we watch Farrah Fawcett tonight in a documentary she shot on her own along with friend Alana Stewart about her fight with anal cancer that some say she is losing. It’s hard to rectify thoughts and images of that with the first image that comes to all of us at the mention of her name, her red swimsuit poster that at times is the epitome of the 70s.
