Patrick Swayze died today after a long battle with cancer. I've enjoyed his movies, especially To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.
It's ironic that I should hear about his death while watching my borrowed copy of North and South, one of his earlier movies, a John Jakes miniseries that was wildly popular the year I worked for Domino's Pizza (1985). I can still hear my old boss shouting "Mr. Supersteve suh! I have a delivery for you suh!"
