Brief vent

Yes, I did watch the death pageant today.  I confess to have been one of those moved by MJ’s death, having come of age in the 1980s.  But I was put off by today’s show — the exaggerated claims of his greatness, the odd (considering MJ himself) attempt to make it a “black” celebration, etc.

I was particularly disgusted by the way they shoved his daughter in front of a microphone — the same kid whose privacy he clearly worked so hard to protect over the years.  Was there anyone who wasn’t aware that he’d have strongly opposed having her up there?  Heck, she was clearly opposed to the whole idea.
