Sideshow Alert

I cannot say I am a Michael Jackson fan, but I am certainly not glad he is dead. It’s a shame that his neuroses were so utterly public and bizarre. The latest rumor is that he was on demerol. It’s sad that so many talented people end up like this.

HOWEVER… why do I know that the ensuing months will be a freakshot of child-custody hearings, squabbling relatives, tell-all revelations, and a massive fight over the will.

And deep in my heart, I know that his funeral will be attended by family, celebrities, a boys choir, and possibly a chimpanzee or two?
