Do Not Get It

United States

I don't get it. Michael Jackson was a very talented entertainer whose music brought the world much pleasure. He had a tortured life. He was exploited first by his father and then by numerous individuals who came into his life. He had serious mental health issues. He was obviously addicted to prescription medications and those around him were his enablers and eventually were instrumental in his death. He leaves behind three fatherless children who will also be exploited. This is all very very sad but the attention that his being given to his death, memorial service, and funeral are WAY out of proportion to contributions to society. What did this man contribute that warrants such post mortem adulation? This is just another example of today's screwed up system of values. It will cost the city of Los Angles in excess of 2 million dollars today to maintain crowd control. Unbelievable :-(

Now you are the topix police? Does not get it is not the only one who have heard more than they wanted to about MJ. Yes he had talent, and yes his music is classical but too much is too much. Even the local editors are tired of it.
