This just in: Kanye West has badmouthed Patrick Swayze and claims Farrah Fawcett had the better cancer.

"if you got pancreatic cancer, just get yur goddamn pancreas removed!"

Not that simple. Not only is the pancreas one of the more difficult organs to ecxise, but if it`s a malignant tumor that grows to a certain size, it`s inoperable. Cancer may also spread, making surgery moot.

Funny how people are praised as a great actor/person/singer only after they`re dead. This is Michael Jackson`s OD death all over again, without the psychotic fanbase. Everyone remember how MJ went from sick child rapist back to superstar when he died? I`m going to consider dying actually (maybe much to the wish of some posters), it`s a great PR stunt.

Swayze hadn`t been in the spotlight for well over 15 years, and wasn`t exactly alone with his disease. Some 25,000 people die from it each year in the US, that`s (erroneously) 68 people every day. He wasn`t a "great actor" anymore, he was just a regular joe.

pirate guy with a silly name, you`re a bit insensitive, aren`t you? Come on, at least wait until the next day or something before mocking a dead person. I did after MJ died (and I only ever knew him as a freak because his good music was before my time).

RIP, Mr. Swayze. Your last name is awesome.

I`m laughing at the jokes and I wasn`t a fan of his movies - but - he certainly portrayed dignity and courage in the face of serious bad mojo. Respect due.

My fave Patrick Swayze movie wasn`t Dirty Dancing or Ghost. It was "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar"

It`s a mouthful but a funny, touching movie nonetheless. `Twas lucky to have seen his ;last show "The Beast" before his sad demise. RIP.

I kinda liked some of his roles. In particular, I thought he was a wonderful kiddie-porn producer.

Still, even if his acting was not liked by all, he seemed like a nice guy. RIP

Even before his illness started, I watch Point Break every f_cking time it`s on TV (and with cable, that`s at least once a week).

He seemed like a nice, humble guy.
