I’m not going to pretend (like I’ve seen others do) that I have some ‘new found love’ of Michael Jackson or have been a fan over the last 15+ years of odd behavior and legal trouble.

However, I will say that I appreciate and recognize the impact he has had on music, my own young years (I must have played the ‘Thriller’ album a million times) or his status as an influential musical and cultural icon that has left us too soon.
