Sadness. Actor Patrick Swayze has passed away at the age of 57. He made a few really good and fun movies, such as Dirty Dancing, Ghost, and To Wong Foo: Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar, and a few things like Road House (Crow T. Robot's favorite movie and one of the most painful viewing experiences I've ever had). He did his work with passion and honesty, and seems to have been a pretty nice guy. He will be missed.
