    Michael Jackson was one the greatest musical talents this country has ever produced. He certainly was one of the best known Americans around the world. Long before Obama came, there was Michael Jackson, making people happy from Tokyo to Toronto: Buenos Aires to Paris. Despite his human weaknesses, he remains the BEST. The press really tormented the majority of his short life. May his soul rest in peace, finally!

    Love and peace
