Anyone else ready to shut down media to avoid “Jackson” overload?

Ok, I know he was a talented performer and did some revolutionary things for his time, but seriously, is that worth raising him to the level of deity? I do not question that he was popular and impacted a lot of people but certainly there are more pressing concerns and newsworthy events that should lead our headline news these days. Let him rest in peace already and move on.

Life marches on and there are many noteworthy people that deserve our adulation and adoration that pass from this world everyday. These ordinary heros are forgotten in the midst of the sensationalism that surrounds a celebrity’s life. When are we as a society going to wake up and realize there is more to life that following the every nuance of celebrity nose picking. Do we really need to put these people under a microscope? Is there life really that interesting? If you really want to “honor” Michael Jackson, then just look at the seclusion that he worked so hard to shroud himself in over the last decade… it would seem ignoring his death would be the most appropriate way to pay tribute to his own wishes while he was alive. So, in honor of Micahel Jackson, I say lets move on people!
