She is truly a Charlie's angel now. R.I.P Farrah, thanks for making adolescence...more comfortable. :cry:

First poster I bought myself as a teenager. Bittersweet memories now.

I think it's depressingly silly that so many news outlets won't say what kind of cancer she died of. Fox News of all outlets has a piece on the awareness issue, along with some lame apology for the media from the American Cancer Society.

The reason people don't hear so much about anal cancer is not because it's taboo or a body part that we don’t often talk about, it is because it is such an uncommon type of cancer.

Which explains why I'm not talking about it over lunch at friggin' Panera, but doesn't explain why there's an obvious blank space in the news coverage of a timely news item.

I should say "radio" news outlets, because a lot of web coverage has been decent. Haven't had a chance to watch TV coverage at all.

Right. We only report HAPPY news. Like someone dying.
