our hero Patrick Swayze checks in
Here at this blog, we have our heros. Christopher Reeve was COOL. He was a good actor, but the second phase of his life, where he pushed research on trauma victims and spinal cord injuries (etc) was pretty darn incredible. His wife was something else too, adhering to the old fashioned idea (perhaps unusual in Hollywood) of married in sickness and health.
Patrick Swayze is probably this blog's biggest hero. The dude is creative, talented, has a rocking great smile, and unusual for Hollywood, met and married his teenage love and HAS STAYED TOGETHER. For over 30 years. Not everybody can be so lucky, but he has his head screwed on straight, and now he says he is gonna kick cancer's a$$. My understanding has always been that pancreatic cancer is often the most deadly type, but Patrick is still on the move and undefeated and WE LOVE HIM.
