Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson  : Dry Bones cartoon.
A lot happened during the past week, but my American informants assure me that the death of Michael Jackson was what dominated their screens and riveted their Media interest.

With others around the world, I used the Internet to tune into a streaming video "feed" of the Memorial.

But as I watched, I couldn't shake the idea that no one had loved this talented and tormented person enough to get him into treatment. And the televised ceremony seemed, to me at least, to be an uncomfortable attempt to cleanse all of us of guilt ...even those of use who were just guilty of being amused and entertained by his increasingly bizarre and freakish appearance.

So what do YOU think?
