It seemed to stall though. It's been 9 pages long for a couple hours.

EDIT: Now 10 pages.

I still can't believe he's gone. I am in total shock. This must have been how my parents felt when Elvis died.

Who cares about the pedo stuff (he was acquitted!)? This guy was the greatest entertainer of modern times. He was REALLY the King of Pop.

The wall-to-wall coverage is creepy, though. Listening to Keith Olberman now on MSNBC.

I think I just saw him at a McDonald's drive through ordering a Happy Meal. There was a fat dude in a white jump suit sitting next to him.

Wow. I was so disconnected with the media for the last couple hours. My wife just told me he dies.

To a music icon.

I wonder how long it'll take for someone to make a movie about him.

I guess the Beatles get their songs back...

Jackson Leaving Beatles Songs to McCartney in Will

Michael Jackson reportedly plans to end his longstanding feud with Paul McCartney by leaving him the Beatles' back catalog in his will. Jacko and Macca have been estranged since a falling out back in 1985, after Jackson beat out McCartney and Yoko Ono -- widow of John Lennon -- in a bidding war for the rights to 200 of Fab Four's legendary songs.

Sir Paul, 66, has long felt betrayed by Jackson, now 50, on principle. In 2006 McCartney said, "You know what doesn't feel very good, is going on tour and paying to sing all my songs. Every time I sing 'Hey Jude,' I've got to pay someone."

Previously, the pair collaborated on Jackson's 1982 'Thriller' extract 'The Girl is Mine,' and McCartney's 1983 single 'Say, Say, Say' from 'Pipes of Peace.'

U.K. newspaper the Daily Mirror quotes a Jackson insider as saying, "Michael told his lawyers he was sad he no longer talks to Sir Paul and said he wanted to make things right."

Just last month, Jackson denied rumors that he was suffering from a deadly lung condition after unauthorized biographer Ian Halperin claimed Jackson was battling emphysema, genetic illness Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD) and was also losing the vision in his left eye.

Heard "Man In The Mirror" on the way home. Almost shed a tear. I love that song.

I totally forgot about "Dirty Diana". That's a freaking great song. I believe I was made fun of by my siblings for liking that one as well as "Black Cat" by sis Janet. Great guitar work in both.

I'm guessing Heather Mills will sue; but, she really doesn't have a leg to stand on.

I also don't understand the criticism of MJ.... yeah, wasn't he acquitted? I used to think he was disgusting too, and I still think he's weird as hell.... but my social worker sis-in-law told me to look at the issue in another way. Not sure if she read the same article but I googled and found this:

http://blogcritics.org/music/article...n-a-pedophile/

It makes sense when you think about it. He has tons and tons of money, maybe some greedy parents told a kid to make up a story just so that they could get something? Who knows.

We may never know for sure.... but like its been said, he was acquitted wasn't he? Its just that the controversy and the media would never let it go and it followed him around like a shadow, innocent or not.

That's because you were like 2 when we all had to watch the story unfold on the news every night. I was shocked and appalled at the allegations and the subsequent payoffs to parents.

To me, he died then.

No, I wasn't aware of the allegations but did you even read my post? It's not like I never even heard of the allegations until today or anything. I had always assumed that he was a gross pedophile due to what I heard and saw in the media, but the more I read articles surrounding the circumstances, the less I believed that he was guilty.

That's one example of why I take media content with a grain of salt. If anything, the way things are presented incriminates people before they're even guilty, which makes the belief that a person is innocent until proven guilty irrelevant.

Anyone and everyone my age grew up loving his music. It brought back lots of great memories hearing all that today.

Yes, he was kindof a freak, but he was also our teenage years.

Whiskey Baby, YOU'RE nearly too young. Kisses.

Sorry, I meant I wasn't aware of the 1993 allegations at the time....
