Am I the only one who isn't broken up over the death of Michael Jackson? It's sad when anyone dies, sure and the famous ones get the press. I can deal with that. But why is NPR doing three days worth of coverage on the "King of Pop," - self proclaimed king, no less - and the newspapers headlining every section with images and whatnot, when three other, just as famous and and just as sadly dead, celebrities are shoved to page three?
I admit to not being music savvy in the technical department, but do we really need to skip over the death of other famous peoples just because he slid backwards on his feet, grabbed his crotch and squealed?
This is me, not crying on street corners.
