I find it sad that the same media that tried to crucify Michael Jackson and portray him as a pedophile is now raising him up as the King of Pop.
For some reason, that just makes me hate the media even more.
I never believed the rumors that he was a pedophile. Perhaps he had me fooled, but he always seemed to me like a child trapped in a man's body. And that child just wanted to hang out with other children. Odd? Yes, but not criminal.
I'm about 7 years younger than Michael Jackson. His music was the soundtrack of my youth. He was a mega-star during my high school days. Every song stirs a memory. I had no idea until this morning, when I was walking and watching his videos on MTV, how much his music ran along side my life. Song after song after song. He truly was an amazing talent.
