As a historian, I’m curious to know where you were when you heard about the deaths of Farrah Faucett and Michael Jackson?

I heard about Farrah while I was at work. I had heard Barbara Walters yesterday morning say that she was in her last hours. I was expecting that one. May God be with her family! It’s never easy to lose someone!

I was on the CTA bus #36 going north. I was knitting tentacles for a jelly fish I am working on. Some girl behind me said that Michael Jordan died. I turned around in shock and said, “WHAT?” She then said, “No, sorry, Michael Jackson.” I said, “WHAT????” Either one a huge shock! I shared the news with the rest of my knitting circle. Everyone was shocked.

Where were YOU????
