died tragically young yesterday. And the cable news stations have been awash in "All Michael All The Time" since the report of his hospitalization and subsequent death.
We're sorry for his children and his family. Condolences to them all.
He was an entertainer--yes, I know, a worldwide entertainer. But that's it folks.
We're getting into Princess Diana hysteria here, and it is annoying. There is no reason for this incessant coverage of Jackson, except to keep people watching for what? Everyone on the planet knows his life's story: his abusive childhood, his strange behaviors, his weird plastic surgeries, his weird marriages, his trial, his whole messy, operatic life.
Someone told me today that if Jackson's life had been lived by an ordinary person, that person would either be in jail or an asylum. Maybe.
The point is, he was an entertainer.
Enough of this.
CABLE NEWS STATIONS!--there are serious issues this country is facing. Michael Jackson's untimely death is not one of them.
Get a grip and act like adults instead of maudlin, self-absorbed teeny boppers.
We're sorry he's dead. He was too young. He was very, very talented.
Now can we get on with our lives?
