On Michael Jackson

So Michael Jackson died. A few days ago in fact.

I feel notsogood, because I remember making terrible jokes about him just last school year. It's not like they weren't funny, and let's be honest, you don't have to be convicted by a jury for the people to already have their own. Really, we were fairly convinced he was a child-molestor.

But none of that matters now, because he's dead. Died of some heart issue, I believe.

On a related note, Farrah Fawcett and Billy Mays also both died within the same short timeframe. Fawcett is some actress from the 70s (show called "Charlie's Angels") and Mays was a spokesperson for commercials like Oxyclean and Mighty Putty. My siblings and I know him better as the shouting guy, as he is always speaking in a shouting tone of voice.

It's kind of disconcerting, realizing that your going to live long enough to see your favorite older pop stars and music idols die.

However, Michael Crichton died November 2008 and NO ONE made a big deal about that, but they're willing to get teary-eyed about a sorta creepy pop star who was suspected to be a possible child-molester!

Man, people got their priorities all backwards.
