Enuf, Enuf, Enuf!

     Headline news flash:  Michael Jackson:  Still Dead.
     Uncle already on the Jack-o coverage.  We are now in day six of this unbelievable over reaction to the loss of the King of Pop.
     Yes, he was an icon.
     Yes, he had a massive following.
     Yes, he will be missed, but come on, how much more do we need to know?
      Well, when you stop to think about that, despite the wall-to-wall coverage shoved down our collective throats by the media, they have left some questions unanswered and let's hope Larry King, Brian Williams, and others get on it before this story fades=2 0into the distance.
      For example, was he alone in bed when he died?
      If not, what were the age or ages of those with him?
      What was he doing just before he succumbed?  Was he listening to some Elvis song? Was he reviewing the Super Bowl video of his sister?  Was he talking with his dad about his parental disciplinary techniques?
       What was the last song he sang before he died?
       Did he leave a note to the cable talking heads with some last words of wisdom on how to cover his funeral?
       As you can see the list of unanswered questions is monumental and it8 0s highly disappointing that the media sensationalist have not found the answers yet.
       Come on guys.  If you're going to exploit this poor kid's death, let's get all the details and get them now before something happens to Brittany Spears and your fickle "graving for higher ratings" switches to her.

Amen,Mr. Skubick! I was shocked to hear of his passing and had more than my fill of "news" reporting on his death that night. Let it go already and proceed with the funeral. Let us remember the King of Pop with his music on the radio and/or IPod.

It would be interesting if the media would leave him alone and look at the education funding crisis in Michigan.
