The King of Pop

Dear Friends,

Today we mark the death of Michael Jackson. I am personally saddened because he represented one of only a handful of musicians who have had a profound impact on the decisions I have made in my life. The man was troubled, his actions bizarre but his music brought me joy and for that I am thankful and I will miss his presence.

Be wary of people running their mouths. The King of Pop had problems, there is no doubt about that. But the people who will spout off jokes and disregard the art tend to be talentless and non-contributing and they will never affect .01% of the number of people that Michael Jackson did.
