Just for the record

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?

True, but any death is sad, especially for the three young innocent children he leaves behind.

Right you are. I pray the children, at least, are able to have a stable (hopefully non-famous) life from here on out.

There is no telling what he did to his children.

I think the world is better off without that pedophile.

I think people do know what matters in the world, and things like this are just an escape for a little while. We're humans, death is a sad thing, and many of us grew up with Michael Jackson singing and dancing on MTV--and even before that when he was a little kid. He was relatively young to die the way he did, and no matter what you think about his issues (they're repugnant, IMO) he still had a huge impact on the music world and pop culture. RIP Michael
