He's Out of His Life

Since Roger, our host, is currently visting his new girlfriend in Argentina—Kate, I think he said her name was, Kate Gosling or something like that—it has fallen on me to inform the readers of this blog that Michael Jackson is dead.

Despite his wealth and talent, or perhaps because of it, it can't be denied that during the last 25 years of his life, Jackson was nuttier than a Mr. Goodbar. But it also can't be denied that the man created a lot of first-rate pop music, from the classic Jackson Five hits of the early 1970s through the endless string of singles from the "Thriller" album. He was an exciting, gifted singer and dancer, and he brought a lot of pleasure to hundreds of millions of people all over the world.

May in death he find the peace that largely had eluded him in recent years.
