I really don't give a rat's ass that Michael Jackson is dead. I think it goes without saying that I didn't know him personally. I didn't like his music (I'm listening to the Charlie Daniels Band right now, if that gives you a clue). Even back when his biggest scandal was repeatedly grabbing his crotch, I found him incredibly distasteful.
So the fact that it's all over Facebook right now, and the message boards I belong to, and StumbleUpon just further erodes my scant remaining faith in humanity.
We're so easily distracted from what actually matters in the world, aren't we?
