Fox is usually pretty good at re-running things like this over the week-end for those individuals who didn't get to watch. I saw only a little of it, but what I saw was a nice send-off to Michael Jackson. Germaine Jackson has a really really great singing voice with a lot of range.

Did the whole world forget about the kids he (allegedly) sexually abused??? He's pays "Hush Money" to these families to "make it all better" or to "shut them up." Sorry, I just can't jump on the bandwagon for this guy. Talented, yes. A man deserving a "State funeral/memorial?" Um, no.

Thars messed up even my worse enemy i would not wish death on. There are a few of You out there that share this sentiment. I ask you why are you glad that another human is dead thats not a joyous thing to normal people, I purpose that you have some real issues. Seek help, I can see it not mattering to you, but glad, Im glad i dont have your soul.

I agree it has been a long 12 days and I am fried on MJ, but I point out that the man was never convicted and your opinion could very well be wrong. I put emphasis on could be, so therefore act educated and until proven otherwise give the man the benefit of the doubt, or better yet move on he's dead.

I don't recall him ever being convicted of any crime.

All pedophiles deserve to die. I am glad the lord dispensed justice where the DA failed.

Maybe you should jump back on your sister and see if she wants to make a baby, make your mother proud and you can release some of that anger.

Considering that there are rumblings from the first kid that was "paid off" that it was just a story cooked up by a greedy father to rip MJ off, I wouldn't be so sure he molested anyone. They almost destroyed him, and his most loyal close friends have always stood by him.(These are people who didn't need his money or noteriety because they had enough of their own). And comparing him to other members of the Hollywood crowd and pop rock stars, he really wasn't so weird after all. It's pretty hard to stay sane in that freaky class.

Neither was Senator Craig.
How stupid must one be to think watching digital video animates the dead? The title of this thread is hilarious.

Wearing one glove was really strange when he was alive. Yesterday we had a whole stage full of phony celebrities that were too stupid to realize how ridiculous they looked. What a sad commentary on our society that we pay attention to these movie stars. Brooke Shields is a horrible actress, but she did her worst acting job yesterday.

Watching the memorial for Michael Jackson was moving to me. His family and friend stood by him through good and bad times. He was a great entertainer. Did we really know him? I think not. Listening to the guest talk about him was calming to me. I think we judge people too much. I know I did. Then listening to his family and friends talk about him was so nice. The news media is awful. Could any of us live a normal life with them around all the time. I think Catie courtic (dont know if i spelled her name right) If awful. She is so judge mental. I cant stand listening to her anymore. Channel 4 take her off the air. I will not watch channel 4 news anymore. She talks nice about him then say's (His freakish ways)!! Give me a break Catie. Look in the mirror.

Would you have asked to baby sit your children? Convicted or not, he's the last person I would've asked to watch mine.

I saw the part where his daughter (?) Paris was speaking about how much she loved her "daddy", but where were the tears? She seemed to be chocked up, but where were the tears? Seemed a little staged to me.

When an 8 yr od can describe your private parts to a jury-youre dirty. One less child abuser to worry about and a sad commentary on a once great entertainer who turned into a first class flake
