2016 isn't the only sucky year (Carrie Fisher, RIP)

So Carrie Fisher died. Because 2016 had at least one more shot to give us.

Having said that, the other day I was going through my blog entries for 2010 -- I do that sometimes, remind myself of what I was doing at various points -- and I realized something.

A shit-ton of famous people died in 2010, too. At least as many as died this year.

I think the perception of 2016 being particularly brutal is due to how it started: David Bowie and Alan Rickman's deaths were complete shocks that came back to back and were both people to whom their fans were (justifiably) super-devoted. Then Prince died, which was just as big a shock. It set the tone for the whole rest of the year.........
