INTERESTING THOUGHT FOR TODAY
"Why is Jackson's legend and memory so big with so many? It's not just because they loved Jackson's sugar-pop music but, I suspect (and correct me if I'm wrong) because he lived in a manner that they themselves would love to savor -- a kind of whimsically perverted, high-denial, candy-cane existence in which all malignancies are ignored or suppressed in order to satisfy each and every fantasy-dream whim, without compromise or hesitation. This is why we're truly doomed -- why the country will never do what's necessary to face much less avert whatever greenhouse-gas, ice-cap-melting apocalypse is coming our way. A nation that worships a monster like Michael Jackson is a nation of undisciplined "I want!"-ers and high-lifestyle drunkards."
