Now the circus begins. Jesse Jackson is involved demanding answers as to the cause of Michael Jackson's tragic death.
According to the New York Daily News he stated, "Michael was not sick. He was not frail."
Please. He was both. And what business is it of Jesse Jackson's anyway? Another ghoulish opportunity for publicity.
The story also says Michael's father is "incensed" and is "desperate to learn what caused his boy's sudden death". Look at him! He's been dying bit by bit for years. Where was his "incensed" family while all these garish changes were being undertaken?
According to one of his children's nanny's he was delusional and addicted to prescription drugs. Addicts are often delusional; it excuses their self-destructive behavior. The article also says she found need to pump his stomach often. What kind of nanny has that kind of knowledge??
Until the memorials are over, I fear the legacy his fans would hope for him will be tarnished by the tawdry details of his life. The tabloids will see to that. I'm sorry for his children for they are old enough to comprehend what will be reported. How will it affect them? Or are they already so imbued with their father's character that it will make no difference. That would do nothing more than add to the tragedy!
I would guess there will be anniversary "celebrations" of his life and death on an annual basis just as there are for Elvis. In time one can hope the legacy of his music will be what's most remembered.
For now, however, it will be a circus of the macabre as his life is laid bare. It will not be pleasant to witness and will be difficult to escape for such is the way the media works.
Where the actual truth lies is not certain. One thing I will take a stand on however. Michael was sick and he was frail. Mentally and physically. To deny that is denying the obvious.
