I'm sorry, but this is one of the things I don't like at all today. People live and people die, it's part of the natural cycle of life. If Joe Oquendo dies in a car accident along with his Friend Felix, well, that's normal, as sad as it is, we can't change that fact, but only a small amount of people will know about it, because, well, they're not famous. Now, take this Leslie person, he died of pneumonia(I hate the spelling of that word), and all of a sudden, people find it necessary to go all like, oh man, this person died on the news. It doesn't seem right. Just like when a hollywood actor or actress is "dating" someone or if they're suddenly homo, or if they are now using a new brand of shampoo, people have to be all, oh god, this person is dating this person, HOW WILL IT TURN OUT!? or Oh man, I KNEW IT! or that brand of shampoo must be the best! I mean, seriously, so what if that person is DATING, everyone dates in their lives, but only famous people have their dates on magazines and TV. Alot of people are homo, why should it matter if your favorite actor or actress is homo, what are YOU going to change because of them, or are you really going to buy a shampoo someone famous used? And why does all this dumb commotion happen? Because alot of people know these people, they're famous for christ's sake. And it isn't right, all people are created equal, just because 10,000,000 people know Person McPants, doesn't mean he's more important than Joe Oquendo who 100 people know of.
Leslie will be missed, he was one of the best comedians ever, but, death is eminent. He lived a full life, enjoyed what he did, and made people happy while doing it. He was a great man, but just because he died doesn't mean the world is going to stop rotating. Someone dieing isn't really news material, since everyone on this planet dies, and famous people are no exception.
