By now everyone in the known universe knows that Michael Jackson is dead.
The press is actually saying that this event is as significant as the death of JFK. (Heard it on Fox News, of all places.) They’ve been showing “Highlights” of his life nonstop. I finally after 2 days began to hear mention of his out of court settlement for molestation, and his lengthy trial for more of the same, but the report was cut short to review the arrival of Janet at the estate.
All of this pomp and circumstance will make it that much more difficult for the victims of his molestation to get past the feelings of guilt that they are somehow responsible for his actions, much the way that the kudos ayres recieved from San Mateo County, and the public support given by some other bay area shrinks and judges have made things more difficult for ayres' victims. (I thought these jerks were supposed to HELP people, not HURT them!)
I’ve been thinking a lot about Jackson's victims these last few days; please take a moment to do the same.
