I Heard the News Today (Oh Boy)

We also note the passing today of Michael Jackson. He was 50.

(As if you can possibly have avoided hearing that news. For the next week it's gonna be All Jacko, All The Time. Bleah.)

But anyway. Say what you will about his revolting personal life--well, he was like King Solomon. An example of what happens when you are simply too damned successful, too young. You wind up with the equivalent of a thousand concubines and a hat full of pagan idols, starting with your own self.

Ask yourself, reader: could YOU have handled worldwide fame and a billion dollars worth of spending cash better than he did? Be glad you haven't been asked to.

In the end: This is the Michael Jackson that should be remembered.



Christ have mercy.
