the mortal contemplate mortality

Both Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died today. Mom had been watching the news, and I joined her during dinner to see both the NBC tribute and Access Hollywood's salute to Farrah.

I asked Mom what she thought of Farrah's death; she said, "Well... we all knew it was going to happen."

Today, June 25, is also a significant day for Koreans, who know it as "yuk-i-o," or six-two-five, the date of the start of the Korean War in 1950. People on both sides of the Pacific have reasons to contemplate mortality, I guess.
