Michael Wasn't Alone

I'm telling you, November 22nd must have been one hell of an unlucky day! Many prominent figures passed away on this day. I've been hearing about it. In the sidebar, you can see a little article clip about Mae West. She was a classic movie actress, and it inspired me to write this post.

Famous people who died on November 22:

John F. Kennedy (1963)
George Washington Gale Ferris (1896)
Leon Leopold Lewandoski (1896)
Mary Kay Ash (2001)
Anthony Burgess (1993)
Blackbeard (1718)
Kim Young Sam (2015)
Norman Granz (2001)
Lorenz Hart (1943)
Henry Wilson (1875)
Pavel Lambert MaĊĦek (1826)
Mae West (1980)
Walter Reed (1902)
Bill Bixby (1993)
Mark Lenard (1996)
Moroni Olsen (1954)
Max Deutsch (1982)
Aldous Huxley (1963)
Shemp Howard (1955)
Michael Conrad (1983)
Florence Henderson (2016)
Jack London (1916)
Robert Sutton Whitney (1986)
And of course, our own
Michael Hutchence (1997)

Those are just some of the famous people who also died on November 22nd of different years. I am surprised to see Bill Bixby is also on this list. Well, not too surprised. I know he'd died. But oddly, for many years, I thought he died November 24th. Ya know what's funny? At the very first, I thought that when I first heard the news Michael had died, because I heard it for the first time on November 24th of 1997. It was a Monday. You know what else is funny? Bill Bixby was also born on January 22, 1934. You know what else is funny? Bill Bixby has always been one of my most favorite actors, and just like Michael, when I saw Bill Bixby for the first time, it was love at first sight! Just like it was with Michael when I saw him for the first time. I was like a little puppy dog. How eerie is all that?!

On the other side of the spectrum, there have been many luminary people born on this day as well. Some of these people are:

Nicholas Rowe (1966)
Shawn Fanning (1980)
Tyler Hilton (1983)
Scarlet Johansson (1984)
Eg White (1960)
Jamie Lee Curtis (1958)
Lawrence Gowan (1956)
Valerie Wilson Wesley (1947)
Aston Barrett (1946)
Rodney Dangerfield (1921)

Just to name a few. OK I had to add some positivity to this post. Doesn't really seem fair to focus entirely on people who died this day. This is a weird post. I've never done one like it before, but it's interesting. So interesting, it gives me an idea.
