I've blogged before about how I don't really feel bad for people most of the time. I find that we all, myself included, create our own problems and it's hard to garner any sympathy most of the time.
I have, however, felt bad about Patrick Swayze. He's relatively young and has pancreatic cancer, which is one of the most deadly cancers. He was great in Ghost and it was fun watching him dance in Dirty Dancing.
Tonight I watched NBC Nightly News and left the TV on when one of the tabloid TV shows came on. They showed the "latest video" of Patrick Swayze and there he was walking on a sidewalk, smoking a cigarette!!!
My sympathy for him just went up in a puff of smoke.
