things I won't be doing today...

... posting about the passing of Michael Jackson.

Of course when any one passes away we should pray for the repose of their soul but we could do with tout the full blown media circus. I mean the media made him the object of their ridicule for decades... now they suddenly care.

whatever.

and of course, by posting I won't be postig about it, I realize the irony... intentional.

I have prayed deeply for his soul. He was a strange man who was, in a sense, a boy his whole life. But seriously, he was mistreated by the media for such a long time, and now they have nothing but praise for his life. Hypocracy indeed!

I didn't post about him here in this drawing {yes, I am shamelessly pushing traffic toward my site - a day late when already there is less interest than yesterday and probably, epeically among your readers not reading the comments of this post they haven't read.

I surely won't be posting about him...or Farrah...or even Ed McMahon...It is all so strange the way barely anyone is talking about Cap & Trade...it's all Jack-o...all the time. SAD.

Maybe it was orchestrated by the administration to deflect attention from cap & trade. (See: 1. "It was Bush's fault. 2. Bush planned 9/11. 3. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.) (spoken like Yul Brynner in "The King and I".)

ha! I thought I was the only thinking that same thing.

cap and trade = we are doooooomed.

At least Mr Jackson (memory eternal) has a viable claim to fame unlike the late Anna Nicole Smith who was a complete zero, that never made anything, never did anything (unless you count being a highly successful gold digger) made absolutely no contribution to the world for good and arguably not much even for ill compared to so many evil persons. I can not recall the media created firestorm surrounding her passing without nausea.
