Yesterday was a bit of a surreal day. On my way to work I heard that Farah Fawcett had died, then after getting to work I found out that one of my professors from my graduate schools days, Dr. Nazir Jairazbhoy had also died. He was a great guy, use to really care about his students. He had an open house every Friday where the real important issues got discussed, especially after he had a few drinks in him, and of course lots of ping pong was played.
And then of course MJ kicking the bucket. What really made the day surreal was my office is just down the street from UCLA Medical Center, so whenever I went outside I could here/see several helicopters hovering above, and I could also here Michaels music playing in the distance.
One other famous or formally famous person died yesterday, Sky Saxon the lead singer in the old 1960s garage band The Seeds also died.
