I am so tired of hearing about Michael Jackson. It's not that I am insensitive, it is just that enough is enough. He was a great singer, dancer, and performer but he did not discover a cure for cancer or set an example for children to pattern their lives after him. Now that he is dead, people are putting him up on some kind of pedestal and worshiping him. That is wrong on so many levels. Praise his entertaining ability, but admit that his life was a train wreck! Whether he did or didn't molest those children, he was still a freak. He married a woman he didn't love to have three children that he gave weird names to. The children are stuck with those names for the rest of their lives. He nicknamed one "blanket" and we can only hope that child will be able to rid themselves of that name! I think that's the one he dangled off the balcony. That act alone speaks volumes about his character. He paid his wife off two different times so she would have nothing to do with the children. He had numerous plastic surgeries and then denied having them. He abused precription drugs. He settled out of court with one family over a molestation charge. He was estranged from his family for years. He thumbed his nose at the USA by moving to a country that the US was at odds with. In his professional life he was outstanding, but in his personal life, he was not ALL THAT!
