Everyone is talking about it so I figure I should at least say something.
Michael Jackson died of a heart attack, and it was a shock. It is sad for his family, friends and fans. But apparently there is no end to the people wanting to make money out of this – t-shirts, music, TV shows, musicals, etc. The public viewing of his body is a bit odd. I find it hard to believe that people are paying their respects, and not just wanting to get in on the show. It’s all a bit Hollywood.
There was no other news on Friday. Or so the media would have us believe. Oh, except Andy Murray won at Wimbledon. And maybe some people died in Iraq and Afghanistan. And the protests in Iran were still going on. Or maybe they all stopped to pay their respects.
