Am I the only person in America that is not in mourning over the passing of Michael Jackson? I am sick to death of hearing "ABC, 123" on the radio and seeing endless news documentaries detailing all the ups and downs of his life. He was no Pope John Paul the II or Mother Teresa or Gandhi. He was an exceptionally talented entertainer of questionable reputation who made MILLIONS of dollars.
What a shame people waste so much time and energy making so much to do over his death and yet don't give a passing thought to the men and women sacrificing their lives overseas. People can't even take the time out on Memorial Day or Veteran's Day to reflect on the sacrifices of our armed service people. Call me a sourpuss, but I can't be bothered honoring a pop star when the rest of the world can't be bothered honoring these true heroes.
