You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun

It would be a lie to say that, even though we’re all about the facts of lives here, the Biography Resource Center team doesn’t pay keen attention to death. Much like newspapers and television networks, we maintain a list of “probables” and prepare Spotlight blurbs for them in the event that the inevitable comes to pass. You may notice these Spotlights from time to time — we already had one up this week for Ed McMahon, which replaced our regularly scheduled Meryl Streep Spotlight. It’s been a sadly busy week for us in this regard, as yesterday we jumped into action when Farrah Fawcett’s death was announced. We were ready with a cogent summary of her life, but nearly the moment we loaded her content, the news of Michael Jackson’s passing hit the airwaves.

So we did our firedrill all over again, because it is our mission to deliver timely, current information to our users. You can see the fruit of our labor in the database now, as well as over the next few days. We hate to say it, but…enjoy.
