Contrarian News Judgment

Michael Jackson, Mug Shot, 2003Would it be wrong to suggest that Michael’s death is not likely to be an event important in our lives? 

Iran is in insurrection. Obama is fighting seemingly everyone trying to get meaningful health care reform into a system plagued by nay-sayers. California is about to stop helping very poor people survive because its politicians won’t compromise. And on and on and on.

Michael is/was a troubled man with great musical talent which he hasn’t used since probably 50% of people alive on the planet were born.

Bread and circuses are nice. How about freedom, reform, and good public policy?

Too boring to cover, I guess.

    I don’t think his death is all that important, but I think he did do stuff in his life that changed music videos and dancing.

    He’s just been creepy for too long.

    It’s not important in my life. I figured he would have died from complications from surgery or from starvation years ago.

    I’m just concerned the fuss about him is going to distract people from keeping pressure on the republicans and ‘conservative’ democrats to ensure we get a public health system.
