So the “King of Pop” is dead.
I’ll save my primary Michael Jackson comments for the “Stop Worshiping Celebrities” blog. I rarely update it but this seems like a perfect time.
Here I’ll just observe that our childish, morally bankrupt culture vainly tries to make gods and kings of celebrities. But they invariably end up being just as frail and flawed as the fools who idolize them, and often more so.
The day’s news also reminded me of the day another “king” died. I wrote about that day on its 30th anniversary, almost two years ago. Read “Summer’s End, 1977.“
