Patrick Swayze – Hollywood Role Model

Hollywood is not known for producing good role models, but Patrick Swayze certainly has to be an exception to the rule. Despite being an actor, Patrick had a spirit and drive that was simply unstoppably. He was one of those rare individuals who actually managed to live life to its fullest.

After having suffered through a couple months of the non-stop coverage of the well known, self-absorbed, prescription drug abuser, Darvon nutcase Michael Jackson; I was rather appalled at the rather shocking lack of coverage of the death of a man who actually knew how to live life: Patrick Swayze.

The low point just had to be Entertainment Tonight’s Tribute to Patrick Swayze which they did not air without coverage of Michael Jackson garbage trying very hard to take over the show.

Here is my tribute to Patrick Swayze.

Michael Jackson once said not too long ago that he had the body of a dancer. No! Definitely, NOT! Michael had the body of a nutcase.

Patrick Swayze had a dancer’s body, raw masculinity, and amazing grace. Michael is definitely NO Patrick Swayze.
