Patrick Swayze

At 8:05 tonight, the AP announced that Patrick Swayze had died.  By 8:25, my Aunt Ava had posted a FB status update that he had died of pancreatic cancer.   Within minutes of that, several more of my FB friends had notified me that he had died.  Information truly is instantaneous.  How would I have found out about his death otherwise?  Ah, social media.
