Let’s be clear. I think the whole thing is completely overblown but given the money at stake, the issues surrounding his children, his exes, his father, his debts, this is true grist for the media mill.
And I think Congressman King doth protest too much.
I think that King, himself, is using the media frenzy surrounding the death of Michael Jackson to get some media exposure himself. Which, even in the hours leading up to the memorial at the LA Staples Center, he was successful in getting - a minute on MSNBC.
King needs to realize that on the Michael Jackson scale of celebrity, King ranks in there at about minus eleven thousand. When King kicks the bucket I doubt that 1.6 million people will request tickets to his memorial service, let alone have 17,500 of his admirers actually attend.
But I’m here to tell you that if I ever hear of King’s passing I will get on a plane to go to his funeral.
If only to dance on his grave.
