Here's an interesting statement.

“The most important thing for the estate of a deceased performer is keeping his or her name or persona in front of the public,” says entertainment attorney Donald David, whose résumé includes representing the postmortem interests of late rapper Tupac Shakur.“They are no longer here to give performances or interviews … thus, the secret is to keep the deceased star in the public’s mind.”

The estate is certainly working double time to ensure this happens. Unfortunately, Michael will be known as a drug-addicted pedophile, and it's his own fault.

Well apparently the rest of the world doesn't share you sentiments about Michael or they wouldn't be packing out his shows or performing mind blowing tributes to him at half time games....it obvious that you and your playmates here are in the small minority. Michael legacy keeps growing and continues to grow inspite of all of you.

Perhaps it's Cirque de Soleil's reputation as a superb dance troupe. They could help any estate bring in money. People may like his music. But the majority of people think he was creepy and find his relationship with little boys disturbing.

With the new allegations of child molestation, the information about his child-molesting and drug-abusing ways made more and more available, and his family's lost lawsuit, I find the PR blitz entertaining.

Wacko is really close to R Kelly, Gary Gitter or Woody Allen without the talent. Why would Len be jealous or would she want to be a dead pedophile, floon?

Jealous of a severely disturbed, drug-addicted pedophile, with a frighteningly carved up face?

*shudder*

I actually feel sorry for him, but only to a certain degree because he brought on his own downfall and destroyed countless children's childhoods. I would never want to be him. Jealous? Absolutely not.

Why do you spend so much time talking about someone you think was a pedophile?

Because I want to educate people about what he was, by means of the legal documents and court transcripts, so that they know the truth, in spite of his f'loons.

Until f'loons stop committing character assassination, sending hate mail, and making death threats to Michael's victims and the people who had the courage to expose him, people like me are going to take a stand.

The vertebrates , including humans, have defense mechanisms even more sophisticated. The immune systems of vertebrates consist of many types of proteins , cells, organs and tissues, which interact in an elaborate and dynamic network. As part of this more complex immune response, the immune system adapts over time to recognize specific pathogens more efficiently. This adaptation process is called "adaptive immunity" or " acquired immunity "able to create an immunological memory . The immune memory created from a primary response to a specific pathogen provides improved side encounters answer the same specific pathogen. This process of acquired immunity is the basis of vaccination .
