Michael Jackson’s viewing free to the public

Well, sort of anyway. The Jackson family originally planned to charge the public $25 to attend Michael’s memorial service at the Staples Center next Tuesday. However, the bad publicity forced them to cancel that plan and hold a lottery instead. Fans will be able to register online for the chance to win one of 17,500 tickets to the viewing.

I, for one, am glad the Jackson family isn’t turning this into some sort of media circus. Oh, wait. If they’re doing this, they might as well turn Michael into a marionette and have him do one last performance. I think people would be touched by that.

rip – a legend who endured the lies of the media and died -$400,000,000.00 broke and not even his kids were his

July 5, 2009 To the Children, Family, and Loved Ones of Michael Jackson hoping this comforts your hearts– Michael and our house. Mom’s (83 years old) youngest child, Ted (two years Michael’s junior and now gone home with the Lord), would watch Michael with legs crossed, three feet away from the TV absorbing Michael Jackson’s everything. We loved Michael too. He was in our home – part of our lives. Michael gave us so much. His love, creativity, devout attention, energy, and all those things words cannot begin to describe which flowed fluently planting the seeds of his passions and… Read more »
