Patrick Swayze, one of the good guy celebrities, has died.

I just heard the announcement that Patrick Swayze has died. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and had filmed a season of 13 episodes of the A&E cable channel's "The Beast" last summer while undergoing chemo.

More of the older ones of you reading this might remember him more vividly as the male lead character in the movie, "Dirty Dancing," an entertaining movie for most who have seen it.

This particular celebrity was a good guy and it's sad to lose people to anything, especially more frequently now, it seems, cancer, a progressively dibilitating and unforgiving disease. Well, it's going to be one of those things where people look to see what other celebrities or famous people will die now, thinking about the idea that death comes in threes.
