Farewell Patrick Swayze

Posted By on Fri, Sep 18, 2009 at 9:52 AM

Surprise, surprise. I am also a Patrick Swayze fan. I loved him in the Outsiders, Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing, Ghost, City of Joy, and yes Point Break. Yes, I said it Point Break and whenever they show it in syndication I watch it. Why? Because Swayze's characters are reflective of what I perceive him to be — a strong man, who does not give up, regardless of the odds against.  The spirit that allowed him to fight pancreatic cancer for 20 months, is the same spirit that informs his characters. He will be missed, but not forgotten.
