Damn I wish I could afford to be more eccentric!
I'd not have guessed he was that cool to work with, since he was such a perfectionist & all.

Autopsy reveals that Michael Jackson died of food poisoning instead of a heart attack which was previously suspected. Seems he had been eating some ten year old weiners.

I just hope when I pass on that people will think of me enough to make jokes.

Subject: SOLDIER RESPONDS TO MJ'S DEATH.....
This is written by a young man serving his third tour of duty in Iraq .
Thought you might find his take on the Michael Jackson news interesting.
Okay, I need to rant.
I was just watching the news, and I caught part of a report on Michael
Jackson . As we all know, Jackson died the other day. He was an
Entertainer who performed for decades. He made millions, he spent
Millions, and he did a lot of things that make him a villian to many
People. I understand that his death would affect a lot of people, and
I respect those people who mourn his death, but that isn't the point
Of my rant.
Why is it that when ONE man dies, the whole of America loses their
Minds with grief. When a man dies whose only contribution to the
Country was to ENTERTAIN people, the Amercian people find the need to
Flock to a memorial in Hollywood , and even Congress sees the need to
Hold a "moment of silence" for his passing?
Am I missing something here? ONE man dies, and all of a sudden he's a
Freaking martyr because he entertained us for a few decades? What
About all those SOLDIERS who have died to give us freedom? All those
Soldiers who, knowing that they would be asked to fight in a war,
Still raised their hands and swore to defend the Constitution and the
United States of America . Where is their moment of silence? Where
Are the people flocking to their graves or memorials and mourning over
Them because they made the ultimate sacrifice? Why is it when a
Soldier dies, there are more people saying "good riddence," and "thank
God for IEDs?" When did this country become so calloused to the
Sacrifice of GOOD MEN and WOMEN, that they can arbitrarily blow off
Their deaths, and instead, throw themselves into mourning for a "Pop
I think that if they are going to hold a moment of silence IN CONGRESS
For Michael Jackson, they need to hold a moment of silence for every
Service member killed in Iraq and Afghanistan . They need to PUBLICLY
Recognize every life that has been lost so that the American people
Can live their callous little lives in the luxury and freedom that WE,
Those that are living and those that have gone on, have provided for
Them. But, wait, that would take too much time, because there have
Been so many willing to make that sacrifice. After all, we will never
Make millions of dollars. We will never star in movies, or write hit
Songs that the world will listen too.. We only shed our blood, sweat
And tears so that people can enjoy what they have.
Sorry if I have offended, but I needed to say it.
Remember these five words the next time you think of someone
Who is serving in the military;
"So that others may live..."
