Regarding his relations to kids.....

I personally beleaved it was true....and glad that part has come to an
end.....

Regarding his own kids...

Re: Michael Jackson dies?

I'd say I agree with you on all counts. His old tunes were pretty darn good
(and I'm talking OLD --pre-Thriller)

I heard it from my wife, who heard it from Kirstie Alley, who heard it from
Perez Hilton.

And THAT is why Twitter is awesome.

Re: Michael Jackson dies?

Craig:

I met Michael when he was just a child. I think they were dong a
concert, likely part of a tour for an album, and were in Hawaii. My
then-husband worked for a radio station at the time, and we met the
whole family in their suite at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. I was
amazed to find we were the only people at the meeting.

When he reached out his little hand to shake mine, all I could think
was that he shouldn't be in a hotel room in Hawaii meeting some adults
that would have absolutely zero influence on his life and success, he
should be out playing in the sun and surf with his brothers and
sisters. I felt so sad for him, in particular, and there seemed to be
a sadness about him.

Then I felt hope years later when he burst again onto the scene in the
early 1980's with some incredible music and dancing. What a talent.
What charisma. His focus was so intense on his performance that you
couldn't help but be drawn into it.

But, as it is with all of us, whatever quirks and issues we don't
resolve early in life just get more and more magnified as we get older
and older, and I guess that's what happened with him, and he took a
step off the reality bus into a world of his own.

And then it was very sad again. I think he lost himself at a young age,
found himself again for awhile, and then lost himself again. So I'm
sad that his life ended in such a way, but hope that his sadness has
finally ended and that he's really in Neverland now.

Re: Michael Jackson dies?

My wife read (or saw on TV) that the Jackson parents used to force their kids to practice and rehearse for hours and hours and hours every day, even when they cried to not have to. They basically stole their kids' childhoods so they had a chance at fame and fortune when they grew up.

I really felt sorry for the Jackson kids. I hope their parents realized what they did.

Re: Michael Jackson dies?

Great story! A few questions/statements

1) Was that radio station where you learned the magic of flourescent light
bulbs?
2) Was that the village on Oahu? That's where I stayed on spring break!
3) I agree with your points. It's funny watching the old videos/songs. He
tries bravado, machismo, and rapper-swagger, but in the end he seems like an
asexual pretender. Like a hormoneless little boy.
