Actor Patrick Swayze has died after a long battle with cancer. I don't have the deep emotional attachment to him that many (predominantly women) have-in accordance with applicable law, I took women to see "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" when they were in theaters, of course, but I don't have an emotional attachment to either film at this point.
Swayze, for all the fun people had at his expense, seemed to be able to laugh at himself, a quality I admire. This is a link to one of the funniest SNL skits I have ever seen, a Chippendales dance off between Swayze and the late Chris Farley.
RIP, Patrick Swayze.
