Michael Jackson, Dead?

Mark Sanford, off the front page.

As weird/criminal as he's been the last decade or so, there's no way to explain to younger folks how big Michael Jackson was in 1983. Heck, I think Thriller was the first LP I bought (the first 45, a couple of years later, was the Super Bowl Shuffle).

First, Farrah Fawcett goes (icon of the 70's).
Then, Michael Jackson may have gone (unconfirmed) - icon of the 80's.
Who's next?

Ed McMahon too small, figuratively?

Don't forget John Callaway. I used to like his Chicago Tonight segments. Too local?

Is Richard Simmons still alive?
