Michael Jackson's death

Am I the only one who isn't very concerned about this? I lost interest in Michael Jackson when he was accused of child molestation and then paid off the victim's family so it would all go away. Then he was accused AGAIN of getting a kid drunk and sleeping in the same bed...sick. That's too coincidental - and I am a strict advocate for the safety of children. Sorry, folks, not a fan of Michael Jackson.
I am sure his family is mourning, though, and I wish them nothing but comfort and peace.

No you aren't the only one. I was also very disturbed by these reports, but I feel like no matter what he did or didn't do regarding the alleged child abuse, his life was also very very sad.

Our culture takes people (when did Michael start showbiz?) and turns them into objects. That kind of objectification is so dangerous. And if someone already has issues, the distortion is even worse. It's really ugly. And sad.

Too true, Pom. I am so glad that I am not a celebrity! :o)

I was more struck with Farrah Fawcett's passing than with MJ. Both, however, portend how old I feel at the moment.
