Really. I mean, I have some sympathy in my heart for his family, and I feel badly for those in his employ, but that’s about it.
I was a child of the 80’s. I remember MJ back then. I was not a fan, short of a brief admiration of the Thriller video. And I am still not a fan, even today.
My contemporaries on Facebook have been posting video after video after video, and it’s been all I can do to endure it. There for a while over the weekend, even the venerable CNN website listed coverage of MJ over coverage of what’s happening in Iran.
I mean, really. Let’s not put this on the same playing field as Elvis. Because I can see the future — people will say that MJ did not die, he just faked his death. These same people do not want to believe it’s true, will not accept it.
When an old person dies, he takes a large portion of the past with him. When a child dies, he takes a large portion of the future. What about a man somewhere in the middle? What does he take with him?
I am waiting for some semblance of normalcy to return to the world.
