Karl Malden would roll over in his grave being in the same news article. he was a true American, and having him viewed as any less when compared to a Sexual Predator is disgracefull

who is the twisted mind that wrote this article? I spit out my tea whilst reading it. So inappropriate, lacking actual facts and just plain unnecessary.

The criticism surrounding the death of Michael Jackson by the media smacks of white racism. The comparisons of Jackson to white men is bogus. Particularly despicable is the statements of politician Peter King of New York. Child molestation is not the exclusive domain of the late Michael Jackson. In fairness, consider the celebrated deaths of Elvis Presley and Judy Garland, both of whom were drug addicts. Karl Malden was married for 70 years--so what--no one knows what problems that relationship had! People who criticize Michael Jackson as being "low culture" need to take a look in the mirror. If nothing else, he has brought people together during a time of economic recession, unemployment, and homelessness to remember the excitement he brought into the otherwise dreary existence of peoples' everyday lives.
