Boy, what a week for the sons of 70s tv stars. First the beautiful Andrew Koenig (aka Boner from Growing Pains) was found dead in Vancouver (nothing says “I Don’t Believe,” like a Stanley Park suicide during the Olympics.) Now Marie Osmond’s son Michael Blosil has thrown himself off a building in LA. Michael, 18 a student in fashion design, was one of her eight chilluns, (and one of five adoptees, which sort of suggests an Angeline Jolie-style baby-adopting frenzy at some point).

Both men had depression, and both deaths are incredibly sad. Depression is a bitch.
