Famous Cancers

Through the years, I have collected a lot of friends and acquaintances who were Cancers. Personally, I'm a Cancer with fire signs dominating--so I have a nasty temper, will defend a friend or relative to the death, but get weepy at a cartoon, worry what disease I have this week or month--a decided contradiction. And that is with a Leo rising, so love me or hate just don't ignore me. Yeah, yeah, I know with precession I wasn't really born a Cancer, but a Gemini. Well whatever--I was born clingy, stubborn, moon-faced, a little nutty--and as I have grown older, a great mimic (it's not good when I watch too much Glenn Beck or Robin Williams because I start to sound and act just like them). Anyway from my vast stores useless info, here are some Cancers through the ages (A few people have started showing up as Cancers--that I don't think are--the range I use is June 21-July 22).
