Do I mourn alone for Mr. McMahon? Always second banana in life, even his death is overshadowed my others who just happened to be blessed with looks and talent? And personality. Hi-OHHHH! I don't really care, of course. The upside of all the media coverage of Jacko's passing is that we get to see images from his life over the years, reaching back to the time when he was just a precocious and cute little child and up to his early career as a talented performer. It's much better than seeing the pathetic and maudlin freak he evolved into later on. All the media are asking how he'll be remembered? Will people become even more appalled by the sordid details yet to come out about his private life or recall him for his performing persona and talent? What's the point? His story is over. The guy is dead. Ain't nothing going to change his behavior at this point. Your kids are safe now. You can go back to enjoying Thriller again.
