okay... i realize eulogizing the king of pop is no little thing. he came by a road which diverged in the wood, and in my opinion, he took the wrong one.
something went terribly, terribly wrong.
but there was a time when he made us dance, and he made us smile. there was a time when black kids had someone who went so far beyond 'someone to look up to'.
i don't know what happened to him. i shudder to think what sort of spirits took control of the blessed child he once was.
so, i'm going to lay ill feelings aside, and remember the joy that this little person brought to us all, once upon a time...
