Patrick Swayze has died.

CNN Story

I don't know about you, but I just liked the guy. He was tough (fighting cancer without the pain meds), he was sensitive (Ghost), he had no problem with his masculinity (To Wong Foo), and warts and all (stint in rehab), he seemed like the kind of guy who would always let you know where you stood with him. I'm saddened that the cancer took him down.

I really feel that Swayze was one of the few good guys in the entertainment industry.

I was so sorry to hear that he lost his fight with Pancreatic Cancer. It really is amazing he fought so hard and for so long, given that this is one of the fastest moving cancers that there are....! A Brave and talented man. You said it very very well, my dear.
