RIP MJ...

I loved Micheal Jackson the Entertainer. His achievements as an performer are unquestionable. Since he really hit the skids earlier in the decade, i.e. Post Martin Bashier interview, I've really been rooting for an awesome comeback. A redemption for all of those who used him and took advantage of him over the years. In the end, despite his strangeness, there was never proof of the transgressions that were charged upon him. So that argument is moot now. He was an Entertainer. Quite possibly the greatest entertainer ever. At the very least he's in the same category as Sinatra, Presley, and The Beatles. He changed music and entertainment forever. For me, he will be missed most for the redemption he was never able to achieve and so deserved.
