Poor Michael Jackson. Poor Jackson family. I've been trying to stay away from the coverage but wow, it is everywhere. Mainly I'm sad for this man and I'm sad for his family and what this whole thing has become. In lieu of doing anything productive this morning I've been watching old Jackson Five videos on YouTube. The whole group had such energy and charisma that I can see why they were so successful. It kind of makes you wonder how they got so far from where they came. If that is what money does to you, I'd rather be poor. So I'm turning off, tuning out, and choosing to remember Michael Jackson not as the circus he became later in life but as a happy little boy singing his heart out.
