Dead Celebrities

So, some guy that was in a movie or two died yesterday. Aside from the strains of Bad Company’s Shooting Star that keep playing in the back of my head, it hasn’t affected my life too much. The primary exception is my inability to find out what else is going on in the world because half the coverage is about the dead guy. The amount of energy being expended on the news baffles me. Yes, it’s sad in an abstract way, but people die. Roughly 151,000 of them kick off every day, in fact. Can somebody explain to me why his death is any more important than the other 150,999? If, as I suspect, it isn't more important, can we shut up about it? Thanks.
