-A Farwell to Michael and Also to Sanity

17,500 attended the memorial service for Michael Jackson in LA. This was ‘LaLa Land’ at its best! But not just LA—the entire country participated by turning in and bring the TV networks some of their best ratings for the entire year.

Michael Jackson was an incredible talent but also a tortured individual that found it nearly impossible to find happiness in spite of all the advantages of wealth and fame. It was his fame which made it difficult to have any sort of normal life.

The memorial, like his whole life was a show par excellence, but one wonders if Michael would have really been comfortable with all the hoopla and the crowd—particularly as a person that was constantly trying to get away from the mobs and provide some degree of privacy for his children.

One really wonders why his family decided to have such public send off and chose to share the very private event with 17,500 of his closest friends and a 100 million more or so via TV. Not to mention that it was live in 88 theaters and tickets ended up being sold for the ‘free’ spectacle/show/funeral on eBay.

What does it really say about our country that time stops to remember a tragic entertainer while the President is in Russia and now in Italy defining what our future may look like. But first things first, first we bury a tarnished idol and later we worry about Pres. Obama giving away the farm. Have we all lost our sanity—our ever loving minds? Looking at the TV ratings, apparently so!
