What is it about a celebrity death that stirs us?  I never met Stan Lee, never knew him, only know of his legend, but that seems to be enough.  There's a bit of sadness in his passing, but I struggle why I (and we) feel this way about him (and others) though they are really truly strangers except for the media giving us some information on their lives.  Without question, he gave us some of the greatest creative gifts possible.  And I think arguably, he lived the life of a rock star/celebrity.  Certainly by the end of his life his was a household name.  But why do the Stan Lee's, the Gene Roddenberry's, the Stephen Hawkins', the Steve Jobs of fame, all make us say "You're kidding?" when someone tells us they died, with dropped mouths and a gasp.

Stan Lee in general, I think was an all-around nice guy.  Of course, I don't know what his business practices were like, what style of management he used, what investments he delved into, or what his political party or opinions were.  But he was portrayed in the media as a nice, fun-loving man.

And I'm not trying to demean that.  He probably was and I hope he was.  But I still wonder why the 95-year old man down our street who died yesterday evokes only a "really?" from us, when Burt Reynolds, John McCains and the Neil Simons summon a louder "REALLY??" response.

Again, I'm not try to minimize Stan Lee's death.  Rest in peace, Stan.  You've given us alot.

I'm just trying to figure out what it is that the media stimulates a more shocked response in us when someone famous died versus the everyday man.
