Michael Jackson...dead or alive?
June 29, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
Last week I went to Somerset, Wis. for a few days to visit my parents and brother. Practically a non-event in itself until the brother and I got home from shopping Thursday afternoon. Dad’s in his recliner watching the news. It’s reporting that according to TMZ, Michael Jackson was dead. OK, TMZ isn’t exactly high on the list of where I want to get my entertainment information. My brother switches on another channel to Headline News and CNN, which reports that Jackson sustained cardiac arrest and was then in a coma; not dead. OK, so which was it? Is he dead or in a coma? So many conflicting stories. My brother was just amused about how much attention was being paid to the entire story. Finally, the LA Times declared Jackson dead. End of debate, but not the end of the coverage.
Then came MTV broadcasting Michael Jackson videos. Pretty soon, VH-1 Classic and MTV2 jumped on the MJ video bandwagon. Got to see "Thriller" again after several years. I think I rented the VHS when it came out back in 1984. The death of Farrah Fawcett was pushed to the backburner.
For a while, it was rumored that Jeff Goldblum had died in a fall while on location for a movie he was doing. Just a rumor folks, Goldblum is still alive and well.
