Has there been a more tumultuous week in pop culture than the week of June 22?
- Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett and Ed McMahon--all three pop culture figures of different times and impact--pass away.
- Jon and Kate--made into pop culture figures by the media--decide to separate, and their TV series gains record ratings as a result.
- Shaquille O'Neal and LeBron James are united at the Cleveland Cavaliers given the Cavs' acquisition of Shaq from the Phoenix Suns.
- And, in the infedility arena, a South Carolina governor goes to Argentina before coming home to confess, a Nevada Senator confesses to an extra-marital affair and an Italian prime minister does not remember meeting a woman who claims to have been paid to spend the night with him.
Quite a week...
